Brookhaven Women in Science (BWIS) invites the BNL community to a summer reception and presentation of the Renate W. Chasman Scholarship for Women on Friday, September 21, from 5:15 to 7 p.m. in the Collider-Accelerator Department lobby, Bldg. 911.

Named after Renate Chasman, a renowned physicist whose work influenced the design of particle accelerators around the world, the $2,000 scholarship is awarded each year to a woman whose college education was interrupted, but who then returns to pursue a degree on a halftime or greater basis. BWIS offers the scholarship to qualified candidates annually to encourage women to pursue careers in science, engineering, or mathematics.

Refreshments will be served at the reception. For more information, contact Loralie Smart, Ext. 2425, or
