Women in Science

The OSA Foundation and The Optical Society celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science by sharing special tributes from Members. 

The goal of the program is to honor and highlight aspiring and established women. Additionally visit the OSA Stories section of our website to watch videos of OSA members as they talk about their work and sources of inspiration.

Participation is simple. Click the green button on the right to make your gift. You will then receive a confirmation email of your gift followed by an email with a secure link to post your tribute.

Donations as part of this program are matched 100% by The Optical Society.  These funds support professional development and mentoring programs for OSA's students and early-career members.  All staff and overhead costs are covered by OSA. Your donation directly supports our programs and beneficiaries.
