Stony Brook University And Brookhaven National Laboratory Collaborate To Offer Scholarships And Internships To Students In The Women In Science And Engineering Program (WISE)The Office of the Vice President at Brookhaven National Laboratory Affairs (OVPBNLA) and Stony Brook University is sponsoring up to $10,000 in scholarships
STONY BROOK, N.Y., February 18, 2010 – Stony Brook students enrolled in the Women in Science and Engineering Program (WISE) are eligible for scholarships of up to $3,500 to recognize their achievements in research in engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and technology fields. In addition, four internships at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) are available to students in the WISE program.
WISE is an honors program that is designed to engage women who have ability and interest in mathematics, science, or engineering in the excitement and challenge of research. The program is multifaceted and provides many services for its students including: mentoring, academic advising, research opportunities (all first year students participate in research), scholarships and professional development. “The key is to engage and retain high achieving women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. The ultimate goal is to create and sustain a diversified workforce by increasing the number of women in fields that historically have not had adequate female representation,” said Carrie-Ann Miller, Director of WISE.
ScholarshipsSponsored by Stony Brook’s Office of the Vice President for Brookhaven National Laboratory Affairs (OVPBNLA), a total of $10,000 in scholarships is available to WISE students who are in their second academic year and above. Scholarships will be given in the range of $1,000-$3,500.
