Awards are for women who are starting their academic research careers. In addition to research funding, the program will provide leadership development and mentoring opportunities.

This award is funded by a bequest from the Marion Milligan Mason Fund. As a chemist and AAAS member since 1965, the late Marion Tuttle Milligan Mason wanted to support the advancement of women in the chemical sciences. Dr. Milligan also wanted to honor her family's commitment to higher education for women, as demonstrated by her parents and grandfather, who encouraged and sent several daughters to college.

Proposals are due Tuesday, March 1, 2018, midnight Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) and awards will be announced on or before January 2019. Proposals should be submitted via the online application system at https://masonaward.aaas.org/login/indexA.cfm
