Brookhaven Women in Science Offers Scholarship for Women Science Students

UPTON, NY — Applications are now being accepted for the Renate W. Chasman Scholarship for Women. This scholarship was established in 1986 to encourage women who have taken a break from formal education to resume their studies in natural sciences, engineering or mathematics. The winner will receive a one-time award of $2,000 from Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Brookhaven Women in Science, a not-for-profit organization whose aim is to promote the advancement of women.

Candidates for the scholarship must be U.S. citizens or resident aliens who live in Nassau or Suffolk County, or the boroughs of Brooklyn or Queens. They must be accepted for credit in a degree-oriented program at an accredited institution. Their program of study for 2003-2004 must be either at the junior or senior undergraduate level or at the first-year graduate level, to be pursued on a half-time or greater basis.

A committee of Brookhaven Lab scientists will choose the winner. The award will be made directly to the recipient, who will be expected to complete at least two consecutive school terms in good academic standing.

Application forms and further information can be obtained by writing to: Chasman Scholarship Fund, P. O. Box 183, Upton, NY 11973, or applications may be downloaded from this Web site: http://www.bnl.gov/diversity/women/bwis/chasman.html .

The deadline for applications is April 1, 2003. The award will be presented in July. Please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope when requesting an application by mail.

The Renate W. Chasman Scholarship Fund is supported by fund-raising events and tax-deductible contributions from individuals and organizations. Renate W. Chasman (1932-1977) was a noted physicist at Brookhaven Lab. Her work influenced the design of particle accelerators around the world, including the National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven.
