Women in Science House

The Women in Science House (WISH) is an on-campus residential living and learning community for outstanding women science students of various class years and majors. WISH fosters an environment of academic and professional development and provides a nurturing atmosphere for personal growth. The mission of the Women in Science House is to provide tools of success for these bright young scientists and professionals in a collaborative environment. WISH residents engage in academic activities that enhance educational success: research learning experiences, job shadowing experiences, mentoring, and service learning and community-based activities.  The students and alumni of WISH have flourished during their time at IUPUI and beyond. WISH has impacted the undergraduate education and personal development of many women in the School of Science. Women in Science House residents will receive a minimum of $2,300 scholarship package for the academic year.
