 Subject: IBM Research Scholarship for Women
 I have some exciting news: IBM has decided to fund a 
scholarship for women in physics and related fields. The 
best part is the summer job at IBM Almaden, with mentor. 
Although at this point only two new ones a year will be 
given, I think it is a great opportunity for undergraduate 
juniors and seniors. The announcement is below. Sorry this 
is so rushed, but the details were only recently ironed out, 
and we wanted to be able to make awards this year. I look 
forward to all your applications!
