Thompson-Bartlett Fellowships for Women in Science, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Thompson-Bartlett Fellowships for Women in Science, Mathematics and Computer Science have been created to encourage highly motivated women to pursue summer opportunities that will allow them to build their scientific, mathematic and computer science knowledge and advance their career goals. This opportunity is open to sophomore and junior women majoring in STEM fields who are either U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have applied for naturalization. Applications are due April 15th. Five recipients are awarded $5000 each.

This Fellowship is offered to open up opportunities for women and remedy past discrimination faced by US women entering science fields. Strong preference will be given to applicants majoring in Computer Science, Mathematics, Chemistry or Physics. Preference will be given to applicants majoring in Biochemistry, Biology or Neuroscience. It is strongly recommended that all applicants have taken 1-2 (or more) college courses in mathematics. Summer opportunities may be in industry or research/lab-based, but on- or off-campus research opportunities with Vassar faculty are not eligible. Previous recipients are not eligible to apply.

Supported through a generous gift from Dede Thompson Bartlett ‘65, women are encouraged to seek internships and research positions in corporate, university, or medical fields in which women have been historically under-represented. This Fellowship has been established to honor Emilie Jones Thompson, Ms. Bartlett’s mother, a champion of higher education who overcame enormous obstacles to graduate at age 45 with honors from New York University.

Congrats to Alex Ng ’19 and Jessica Bezek ’19, recipients of the Tananbaum Fellowship!
