Your donation will support extraordinary women scientists who are exploring our oceans, lands, and outer space; conserving endangered wildlife; researching and finding solutions to climate change; and sharing the knowledge they gain through the WINGS platform.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF HOW FELLOWS HAVE USED FUNDING FROM WINGS:
"Paying research expenses; for example, the grant of $1,000 for carrying a flag helped me pay for essential hotel expenses on my way to Antarctica, a thermal camera, and some cold-weather clothing."
– Dr. Rosaly Lopes, 2009 Air & Space Award
"I have still not touched it! It is my cash reserve to jump start my research lab a few months from now...I will be spending it on a combination of lab supplies, field research expenses, and possibly a plane ticket to a conference."
– Dr. Kristen Marhaver, 2016 Sea Award
"It was what paid my bills so I could keep working. It allowed me to attend meetings, work-related events and trips. It freed my hands and gave me peace of mind for some months to continue to do what I do."
– Dr. Juliana Machado Ferreira, 2016 Courage Award
