“My husband and I continuously remember how lucky we are that I received this award. We do not know how we could have gone on this postdoc without it.”

“Above and beyond the financial benefit, the award was a vote of confidence in me—that I can pursue this important step and then come back to an academic career, I hope, in Israel.”
"It is not easy to raise a family on a postdoc’s salary, and the Women in Science Award made it possible for me to concentrate on my research knowing that my family was taken care of."
“The fellowship helps me a great deal. In addition to funding, the fellowship gives me some ‘points’ with the principal investigators I work with when it comes to project selection.”
“I would like to thank you once again for awarding me with this honorable prize. It is important to me to emphasis the advantage it gave me and my family while adjusting to our new location, Mainz, Germany. Our expenses were high, as we had to live in a hotel until we found an apartment to rent, in addition to my spouse having to find a new job, a process that took a few months. During that time, we had to rely on my modest salary alone, and this prize enabled us to stay afloat.”
