Women in Science

Women in Science Luncheon

Save the date for the annual Women in Science Luncheon, taking place April 3, 2018. Speaker and program information will be announced in late 2017.

Hosted by the Women's Board, this annual luncheon raises funds for opportunities for women aspiring to science careers, including internships for high school and college students, a graduate research fellow, and—for the first time in 2018—a post-doctoral position. The event annually draws 500 corporate, civic and philanthropic leaders from throughout Chicago and the region. For more information, please contact at (312) 665-7135 or womensboard@fieldmuseum.org

Women in Science Fellowship

Established in 2000, the Fellowship is awarded each year to an outstanding female graduate student who is pursuing an advanced degree in the natural sciences. The Fellowship enables these talented scientists to fully immerse themselves in their research and utilize the Museum’s resources to collect data essential to the completion of their dissertations. 

Women in Science Internships

Each summer, the Women's Board supports internships for high school and undergraduate students. Learn about past Women in Science interns and their work and look for new available internship opportunities each spring.
