The AWG Jeanne E Harris Chrysalis Scholarship provides support to women geoscientists who have had an interruption in their graduate studies. These women are goal-oriented problem solvers, and the Chrysalis Scholarship helps them to finish their degrees so than can bring those skills to the workplace.
When "life happens" it is often women who are willing to make personal sacrifices in order to improve the life circumstances of others. These sacrifices should be temporary, not life long. Chrysalis helps them get back to business!
