WIB is proud to present The Women In Bio Founders Scholarship! The scholarship was established to advance the educational development of women by encouraging and supporting education on all aspects of life science. The scholarship honors WIB co-founders, Robbie Melton, Anne Mathias, Cynthia Wong, and Elizabeth Grey, who all wanted to provide a forum for women to come together to celebrate and support each other's success, and in so doing created a dynamic and invaluable forum for the local community.
We are pleased to announce WIB will be offering three $1,000 professional scholarships this year. Candidates must be a woman currently working within the life sciences and a WIB member from any of our WIB chapters. The money can be applied towards workshops, conferences, courses, seminars and other similar educational programs.
Stay tuned for info on the 2019 scholarship program!
