Every year we award MacArthur Fellowships of $625,000 to individuals who display extraordinary talent and creativity, with the promise for important future advances. These no-strings-attached Fellowships encourage talented and creative people to advance their expertise, engage in bold new work, or, if they wish, alter the direction of their careers.
This International Women’s Day, we want to highlight the voices of a few women who are among the 1000+ MacArthur Fellows. We uplift their stories and aspirations, echo their collective challenges and triumphs, and spotlight their work to help make the world a better place.
