Announcements, spotlights, and tidbits…

Please help us in identifying young women in our region who qualify for the prestigious Emmy Noether Awards, a STEM merit-based award opportunity for qualifying female high school seniors in Louisiana and Mississippi. This award is presented annually to (3) female seniors aspiring to pursue post-graduate degrees in STEM-related fields. After completing undergraduate studies, the Gold Medalist will receive up to $75,000, and the two Silver Medalists will be awarded $25,000 each for qualified graduate-level programs (to be divided over a 3-year span). In addition to the 3 merit winners, up to 10 applicants will be invited as Emmy Noether Scholars to join a network of young female aspiring research scientists and receive information on internship and networking opportunities. An awards banquet will be held in New Orleans on April 23, 2023, at 12:30pm to honor the awardees and scholars.
