The Event

The Women’s Board Fellowship Luncheon is an annual event designed to raise awareness of The Field Museum and all that it has to offer and to raise funds to benefit the Women In Science Fellowship. Women’s Board members and their guests attend a lecture in the Museum’s James Simpson Theatre, followed by a luncheon in Stanley Field Hall. Guests meet members of the Field’s research staff and are encouraged to explore the Museum throughout the afternoon. More than 500 guests are expected at the event.

The Women in Science Fellowship

Proceeds from the event will fund The Women’s Board Women in Science Fellowship. Established in 2000, the Fellowship is awarded each year to an outstanding female graduate student who is pursuing an advanced degree in the natural sciences. The Fellowship enables these talented scientists to fully immerse themselves in their research and utilize the Museum’s resources to collect data essential to the completion of their dissertations. The 2012-2013 Fellow is Charlene McCord, who is highlighted in this year's film.
