Third Annual “Penny J. Gilmer Grants” for Women Graduate Students and Post-docs
To encourage women starting out in our field, OpenEye is awarding several travel grants (reimbursements for transport and hotel) to female graduate students or post-docs in the US or Canada wishing to attend CUP and present posters or talks.
These grants are named for Penny J. Gilmer, PhD, now the Nancy Marcus Professor Emerita of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Florida State University. Penny, our CEO’s original academic mentor, was the first woman hired as tenure-track faculty at FSU’s Chemistry Department. She has been recognized by several organizations for her work as both a scientist and advocate, including the National Science Foundation, the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, and the American Association of University Women. In 2008, she was chosen as a Fellow of the Association for Women In Science for her dedication to supporting women in science and engineering.
To apply, please contact Beatrice Montoya with your proposed topic. Awards will be finalized by the end of January.
