The Center for Life Beyond Reed

Maggie Geselbracht Fellowship Fund

Proposal Overview

The Geselbracht Fellowship is intended to support female students at Reed in pursuing special projects in chemistry during the summer months. The projects must be conducted under the guidance of a mentor, and may be pursued either on- or off-campus. Award amount is $4500 stipend for a minimum 10-week fulltime engagement. In addition, up to $1000 in additional funds are available to support presentation of the student’s work at a national meeting of the American Chemical Society.

Proposals will be judged on their contribution to the applicant’s development in chemistry. All applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with a member of the chemistry department in preparing the application.

Submission deadline for Summer 2017 Fellowships: Friday, March 03, 2017

Please submit the following application materials electronically to Kayla Johnston:

1. One confidential letter of support (e-mailed directly to Kayla Johnston) from the mentor who will be assisting you on the project. The letter should indicate support for the project as described in your proposal.

2. A resume describing your relevant work, research, course or other experiences.

3. Project description (1,000-word limit) detailing the project you plan to undertake. Include a description of your activities. What are the desired outcomes of the project, and how do they relate to your career goals? What will you bring back to Reed from the experience? How does the project fit into your broader training in chemistry and build off your prior experiences?

In the Fall semester following your Fellowship, you will be expected to present the outcome of your project to the Reed community.

Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.

The chemistry department will evaluate the applications shortly after the application deadline.

Contact any member of the chemistry department with questions.
