The North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation Women in Science Scholars Program offers a unique educational opportunity to young women by coupling college scholarships with a mentoring program.
The Foundation has established endowed scholarships at 30 colleges and universities across North Carolina. Two outstanding women undergraduate science students, usually in their sophomore year, are selected annually by each school as North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation Women in Science Scholars. Selected scholars demonstrate a strong interest in science and maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or better (on a 4.0 scale).
Each student is paired with a GlaxoSmithKline mentor who provides valuable leadership to students by sharing her experiences and insights, and providing science career guidance.
The North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation hosts two annual events for Women in Science Scholars - an annual meeting in October and a conference in the spring - inviting scholars, mentors, faculty representatives and staff for a day of networking, learning and sharing.
