Travel Grants

Sixth Annual Penny J. Gilmer Grants for Women Graduate Students & 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,  who was the Nancy Marcus Professor Emerita of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Florida State University prior to her passing in 2019. Penny was our CEO’s original academic mentor and was the first woman hired as tenure-track faculty at FSU’s Chemistry Department. She was 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 Karen Bridges with your proposed topic.

Awards will be finalized by the end of January.
