The American Society of Pharmacognosy Foundation and the American Society of Pharmacognosy are pleased to announce the establishment of the Audrey S Bingel Fellowship for Female Scientists.
The Audrey S. Bingel Fellowship is intended to provide funds, up to $25,000, to assist a female scientist in transitioning from a current career track to another, or to bolster the likelihood of success in her current, preferred career path. This fellowship is made possible by a bequest from the estate of Professor Audrey S. Bingel to the American Society of Pharmacognosy Foundation and was inspired by her keen interest in women’s health, other issues of concern to female researchers, and mentoring young female scientists. Details of the award and the application process are provided here.
It is anticipated that the first review of applications will take place late this fall and at 6 month intervals thereafter. Applicants must be ASP members in good standing for at least 3 years prior to the application.
The funding for the Bingel Fellowship is not sufficient to maintain the award in perpetuity. So, while the ASPF Board of Directors seeks substantial support in the form of co-sponsorships, we invite and encourage ASP members to consider making contributions to the Audrey S Bingel Fellowship in the annual gift to the ASPF.
To submit please send your application to:
Applications will be reviewed twice a year. Please indicate if there is a special need that the application needs to be reviewed sooner. Please see link for details and application process: Bingel Fellowship
