Scholarship Opportunity for Future Female Scientists: Emmy Noether Award

Posted By Tasha L. Cooper, Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations, Friday, February 24, 2017

Scientific discovery is the future of technology and progress. The best ideas are out there, and YOU have them! We believe that you can make these ideas a reality through a career of scientific research and discovery. Science is for everyone. It does not discriminate based on background or resources, and it does not discriminate by gender. If you have an idea and a passion, it is yours to explore. We want to help you explore it. We need more girls in science. We need more girls who are going to discover, explore, and change the world. We need YOU! 


The Emmy Noether Award is a partnership among The Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation (Brown Foundation), Benjamin Franklin High School, and From Student to Scientist. Sparked by an idea two high school scientists had to bring science to other students in a peer-to-peer based program, the Emmy Noether Award developed from the outreach program From Student to Scientist in partnership with Benjamin Franklin High School and the Brown Foundation to create a unique partnership among students, teachers, the community of New Orleans, and beyond.  


The Emmy Noether Award is an investment in the future of young female scientists. Two young scientists will be awarded with silver medals, and one young scientist will be awarded with a gold medal and $25,000 of funding for each of three years that she remains in a graduate level program to obtain a degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics through which she will continue to pursue research and discovery.  
Additionally, all three medalists will become members of the Emmy Noether Scholars, a network of motivated young female scientists working to further science, innovation, and discovery for students and scientists of all ages and backgrounds. 


We are looking for girls who are juniors or seniors in high schools located in Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines,        
St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. John, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington Parishes and Southwest Mississippi counties.
