Outstanding Students Honored by International Women’s Organization

Only one hundred students across the U.S. and Canada were chosen to receive a $15,000 Scholar Award from the International Women’s Philanthropic Educational Organization (P.E.O.) in recognition of their academic excellence. Seven of them are enrolled at the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. https://www.peointernational.org/about-peo-scholar-awards-psa (link is external)

They are Molly Crossman (Psychology), Angela Johnston (Psychology), Rebecca Liu (Immunobiology MD/PhD), Stephanie Loeb (Engineering and Applied Science), Kristen McLean (Anthropology), Madeline Sherlock (Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry), and Jennifer Sun (Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology).

P.E.O. Scholar Awards were established in 1991 to provide substantial merit-based funding for a select group of women chosen for their high level of academic achievement and their potential for having a positive impact on society.
