"Receiving this scholarship has truly been a blessing to me. Not only has it lifted a part of the financial burden that college brings, but it shows the enormous amount of support that BPW/Triangle gives. I am so honored and appreciative of this scholarship and hope to be able to give back to other business and professional women one day by paying this gift forward. Thank you again so much.". - Jessica Watkins
"The Dr. Lois E. Frazier scholarship will support my ongoing Ph.D. research in Neurobiology. This financial assistance will allow me to focus my efforts on intellectual contributions to my project and external contributions to my community, so that I can advance my goal of making science accessible. In addition, interacting with members of the BPW Triangle Branch has broadened my understanding of how my work might benefit the community beyond my field, and has enhanced my engagement in advocacy for women in science."
