About the Women in Science Program

Women in Science

Formerly the Li Ka Shing Foundation Women in Science Program (2008-2012), the Chau Hoi Shuen Foundation Women in Science Program launched in 2015 to award grants that support educational and research projects submitted by UC Berkeley female faculty members who are engaged in collaborative research with female scientists in China. The program offers two types of grants:

  1. New Research Grants, in which two female faculty members will be selected to receive grants to pursue new research, and
  2. Research Grants for Previous Recipients, in which one female faculty member who previously has received funding from the Women in Science Program will receive a research grant to continue work in her respective field and increase the impact of her research.

Priority is given to projects that offer scientists opportunities for meaningful collaboration and long-term partnerships across campuses, with a particular emphasis in the biological sciences.

Support from the Chau Hoi Shuen Foundation includes, but is not be limited to, the following activities: research proposals and joint laboratories; international seminars, travel, conferences and colloquia; and exchange of scholars and graduate students.

Applications for 2018 grants are now closed.
