2014 Graduate Fellowships in Physics and Astronomy

Project: Research project

Description

Northwestern University (NU) requests support for two prestigious Clare Boothe Luce (CBL) graduate fellowships in Physics and Astronomy. The Department of Physics and Astronomy (P&A) and The Graduate School (TGS) have a notable track record of working together to develop female scientists while addressing the particular factors that can hinder their educational and professional development. With Luce Foundation funding, we will be able to more effectively recruit and retain a greater number of female graduate applicants in physics and astronomy and provide an even more advantageous and supportive graduate educational environment for women scientists across the University.
