Brookhaven Women in Science (BWIS) invites the BNL community to a summer reception and presentation of the Renate W. Chasman Scholarship for Women on Thursday, August 6, at 5:15 p.m. in the Collider-Accelerator Department main lobby, Bldg. 911.
Named after Renate Chasman, a renowned physicist who worked at Brookhaven, the $2,000 scholarship is awarded each year to a re-entry woman one whose college education was interrupted, but who has returned to pursue a degree on a half time or greater basis. BWIS offers the scholarship to qualified candidates annually to encourage women to pursue careers in science, engineering or mathematics. For details about the scholarship, go to the BWIS Scholarship & Awards page.
Refreshments will be served at the reception. For more information, contact Loralie Smart, Ext. 2425, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
