Exciting news! The UM Center for the Education of Women (CEW) has just announced the endowment of the Margaret E. Gnegy Scholarship! This fund will support women graduate students in life and medical sciences who have additional barriers to their education compared to traditional students such as returning to school after a 5 year gap, and/or being a primary caregiver to dependents.
The fund has been created and all pledged donations will be matched 50% by the University. Once the endowment is fully funded (up to 5 years from now) CEW will begin to award the scholarship.
This award is a testament to Dr. Gnegy's incredible expertise in mentoring, as well as to her extensive contributions to graduate education both locally and nationally.
