The Lily Glidden Award (Biology Department)

Back to Lily’s Fund for Adventure through TMC.

A similar, but separate, award also exists through the Biology department in memory of Lily. Read more here:

The Lily Glidden Award is given to current students who have passion to explore and learn about the natural world. The goal of this award is to help students clear financial hurdles so they can step out of their comfort zone, pursue their dreams, and grow personally and intellectually. Students may use the funds to explore the natural world on their own terms, to join the research project of their dreams (in the Amazon rainforest, for example), or to participate in a program or course that challenges them in new ways. Available to current undergraduate and graduate students.
