RUTH BLEIER SCHOLARSHIP
IN THE NATURAL SCIENCES

The Ruth Bleier Scholarship in the Natural Sciences was established to encourage undergraduate women at UW-Madison to pursue careers in the natural sciences or medicine.

Applications due: March 1

Eligibility: Any UW-Madison undergraduate woman student enrolled in the Gender and Women's Studies major or certificate program AND in a major or certificate program in science or health is eligible to apply.

Application: Please send application materials via email to the Center for Research on Gender and Women at crgw@mailplus.wisc.edu.

The application should include:

  1. A letter of application describing career goals and what makes you an appropriate candidate (make sure to provide contact information for the summer if it is different)
  2. A resume
  3. Complete transcripts from all colleges attended (unofficial transcripts accepted)

Award: The one-year award will provide a stipend of $1,000, which will be awarded at the end of the Spring semester to be used during the following academic year.

In the tradition of Ruth Bleier's perspective and work, the scholarship winner will also be able to reserve a place in Women's Studies 103 (Women and Their Bodies in Health and Disease) and in additional Gender and Women's Studies science courses (such as 431, 530, 531, 533).
