M. Hildred Blewett Scholarship for Women in Physics
The American Physical Society (APS) is delighted to offer the M. Hildred Blewett Scholarship for Women in Physics. APS was designated the primary beneficiary of a generous bequest from M. Hildred Blewett, a particle physicist who died in June 2004. In accordance with her wishes, the M. Hildred Blewett Scholarship for Women in Physics has been established to enable women to return to physics research careers after having had to interrupt those careers for family reasons. The scholarship consists of an award of up to $45,000. Allowed expenses include dependent care, salary, travel, equipment, tuition and fees.
Please share this unique opportunity with women who might be interested. Further details and an on‑line application procedure can be found on the Committee on the Status of Women in Physics (CSWP) website. Applications are due by June 4. Selection will be made by a sub‑committee of the APS Committee on the Status of Women in Physics. Announcement of the award is expected to be made by August 1.
