Trustees Council for Penn Women Lecture

The The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women (TCPW) is a distinguished alumnae group addressing women's issues on campus. TCPW has funded over $500,000 to organizations and individuals through their established programs including the Fund to Encourage Women (FEW) Grant. The FEW Grant was established to bring to campus internationally renowned female scholars to lecture and meet with faculty and students. The FEW recipients not only lecture but also serve as role models for female students during the day or two that they are on campus. 

 

The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women Lecture Series at the University of Pennsylvania is part of an ongoing program sponsored by a Fund to Encourage Women (FEW) Grant and the Department of Chemistry of the School of Arts and Sciences.
