Each Women in Science Giving Circle (WISGC) Award for faculty is up to $5,000.00.
On this page:
- Requests for funding must be need-based, and applications must convincingly demonstrate how the research project/scholarship meets the stated goals of the WISGC.
- Applicants must clearly articulate how their work fits within the scope of a Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM)-related discipline. Ideally, candidates for WISGC awards will be engaged in scholarship that naturally has a fundamental dependence upon scientific research for success in one’s discipline.
- Application materials must document how a WISGC award will make a difference that impacts career advancement for the applicant, increases the impact of the applicant’s research, and/or accelerates research productivity toward achieving publications, grant funding, promotion, or advancement into an administrative position.
Applicant eligibility will be limited to women and will include any faculty who are in or beyond their third year at Wright State.
The application cycle will open in late February or early March.
Completed applications will be due April 3, 2020, by 5 p.m.
