Women in STEM Leadership Summit Offers Student Scholarships
The inaugural "Women in STEM Leadership Summit" will be held Nov. 2-4 in Atlanta. Dedicated to providing women in STEM access to tools, strategies and networks to succeed in their chosen profession, the summit is being supported by the UGA College of Engineering, the Provost’s Office, the Office of the President, numerous corporate and private sponsors, and the IEEE Women in Engineering organization. Dr. Takoi Hamrita is the summit founder and organizer.
Details on the summit can be found here. Faculty, researchers and postdocs are urged to register for this event; undergraduate and graduate students may register for half-price. The college is offering scholarships to students who are, at minimum, in their second year of course work and have demonstrated academic excellence and leadership potential. To nominate a student for a scholarship, please submit their name, class standing, major, extra curricular activities and awards, and why you think they are worthy of a scholarship to Dr. Hamrita or Merry Crowder.
