Support top female scholars and address the gender gap at the highest levels of mathematics achievements. Make a gift
The Joan and Joseph Birman Fellowship for Women Scholars is a mid-career research fellowship specially designed to fit the career timelines of women and to address the paucity of female scholars at the highest levels of research mathematics. Your gift to this endowed fund will help increase the occurrence and/or size of this award.
The first award for the 2018-2019 academic year was made to Margaret Beck of Boston University. She will use the fellowship, a stipend of US$50,000, toward a full-year sabbatical and to partially fund travel to visit the University of Sydney during 2019.
The fellowship can be used to provide additional time for research, opportunities to work with collaborators, and more. Find more information or apply on the Birman Fellowship Prize main page. Applications for the 2019-2020 fellowship will be accepted from September 1 2018 through December 1, 2018.
