Applications for the 2021 L’Oréal USA For Women in Science program are now open and will close on Friday, January 29, 2021. The L’Oréal USA For Women in Science fellowship program honors female scientists at a critical stage in their careers with grants of $60,000 each. Since 2003, we’ve awarded 85 postdoctoral women scientists over $4 million in grants.

We’re seeking five exceptional female scientists looking to advance their research and serve as role models for the next generation of girls in STEM.
Candidates are selected from a variety of fields including the life and physical/material sciences, technology (including computer science), engineering, and mathematics. Candidates must have completed their PhD and have started in their postdoctoral position by the application deadline.


Wonder Women in STEM

Stony Brook WISE is hosting an event on Jan 27@6pm designed to inspire students to see their futures as women in STEM careers, called “Wonder Women in STEM.” The event, hosted virtually, will introduce students to industry professionals who will share their perspectives on success for women in various STEM disciplines.
The format of the event will consist of small round table discussions, each centered on a STEM major or industry, where a student moderator will facilitate discussion points.  The conversation would be focused on career paths and some challenges and high points for women in STEM.

Participate in the “Wonder Women in Science and Engineering” Event!

On Wednesday, October 2, Stony Brook University’s Women in Science and Engineering Honors Program is hosting an event to inspire students to see their futures as women in STEM careers, called “Wonder Women in Science and Engineering.”  The event will introduce undergraduate students to graduate women in STEM, faculty, and industry professionals, who will share their perspectives on success for women in various STEM disciplines.
The format of the event will consist of small round table discussions, each centered on a STEM major or industry, where a student moderator will facilitate discussion points.  The conversation would be focused on your career path and some challenges and high points for women in STEM. Many of the attendees will be first year students who will greatly benefit from knowing role models like you who are as close as in the same department.
The event will start with a V.I.P. lunch at noon where we will highlight the WISE Honors Program and kick off the event. Students will arrive at 1 pm for the round table discussions.  The event will conclude by 2:30 pm.
Please let us know if you are able to participate.  We will send you the facilitator’s questions before the event to ensure you have ample time to prepare any discussion points. Please RSVP by September 20.
