In honor of her remarkable scientific career and inspiring legacy, APS has established the Millie Dresselhaus Fund for Science and Society. The Fund will reflect the areas in which Millie excelled and left her mark, supporting activities via a two-pronged endowment. The Mildred S. Dresselhaus Prize in Nanoscience & Nanomaterials will recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to nanoscience and nanomaterials, areas pioneered by Millie. The Fund will also be used to support speakers delivering the keynote address to the more than 2,000 young women attending CUWiP, and will provide travel grants for undergrad women who lack resources to attend. For more information on ways to support the Fund, please visit our website below.
