Kimberley McCoy wins Melba Phillips Award for Women in Science, trip to March for Science

“Women’s March on Washington Indiana (WMWIN) is pleased to announce that Kimberly McCoy is the winner of the Melba Phillips Award for Women in Science! WMWIN will cover the cost for Kimberly to attend the March for Science this weekend in Washington, DC.

Kimberly is a graduate student in the Chemistry Department at Indiana University and a regular contributor to the science blog ScIU: Conversations in Science at Indiana University. We were impressed by her proposal to bring her experience of the march back to us in Indiana. She plans to participate in the Week of Science Action following the march, to write a blog post about her experience, and to speak with WMWIN members when she returns.

Please join us in congratulating Kimberly! Thank you for representing Indiana women at the March for Science!”
