The Women in Graduate Science (UOWGS) organization at the University of Oregon focuses on the professional development of women in all disciplines of science to enable them to become successful contributors to their fields.
This mission is accomplished by informative workshops, inspirational speakers, and a community outreach program. In addition, the organization provides social support for women scientists at the University of Oregon, and offers financial support with yearly scholarships.
The UOWGS invites all who encourage and support the advancement of women in science to become members. The UOWGS is supported by the Graduate School, generous donors, fundraising events, and member dues.
The UOWGS is devoted to helping women in the sciences achieve career success. To that end we are offering the following awards in 2014:
Applications are due May 16th. Please see our Awards page for more information
