Advancing the status of women through financial support in the final phase of their doctoral programs.

2024 Conference Recap

Founder Region Fellowship kicked off the 2024 Conference with the combined Fellowship and Region Reception followed by the Awards Dinner and Gala where we awarded 7 outstanding women with $70,000 in grants. All members had the opportunity to meet the recipients and view their academic posters, which you can see on our website. To date, Founder Region Fellowship has provided 370 women with almost 1.8 million dollars in funding to help them achieve their doctoral degrees. THOSE ARE SOME NUMBERS OF WHICH WE CAN BE VERY PROUD!

Thank you to our members and clubs, who continually find value in the Fellowship Program and provide the funds that help the best and brightest women become change makers. We want to thank each and every one of you for supporting our fundraisers and for making donations either through monthly giving or direct donation to become a Fellow, or level up.

Below are the pinning's and drawings that occurred at the 2024 Founder Region Conference.

Thank you from the 2022-2024 Fellowship Board.
