Lillian Prize Scholarship

For Women’s History Month in March 2020, the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History embarked on a collaboration with the Women in Science and Engineering Residential Program (WISE-RP) to highlight women's contributions to scientific fields, past, present, and future. 


Three WISE-RP students planned, proposed, and crafted presentations for UMMNH’s Women in Science Day to share what being a woman in STEM means to them. When the event was cancelled due to the global pandemic, these students reimagined their presentations in a digital medium to share on the Museum@Home webpage. 

They tackle issues like representation in computer science and coding, imposter syndrome, and stereotypes of women scientists in the media.

Their projects qualify them for the Lillian Prize Scholarship, a donor-funded scholarship awarded to current members of the WISE-RP.
