Fellowships

WIF is committed to advancing the careers of women and all people of underrepresented genders.

Starting in 2023, participants in WIF career programs will be WIF Fellows—this means that in all discipline-specific programs, participants will receive a year of support through mentoring and networking. Our current mentoring program is also being folded into this fellowship model. To find out more about what this means, see below for specifics and join us on October 5 for an AMA (“Ask Me Anything”).
