Class of 2020: there is no place like Barnard and no time like now to pay it forward by donating to the Senior Fund! With your help and enthusiasm, the senior class can make an impact through a gift that provides valuable support to the Barnard community. Gifts can be of any size, even a dollar, and if 100% of Athena Scholars donate, the Athena Center will make a gift of $2,020 to the senior fund!

Athena Global Fellows work with organizations tackling some of the world’s toughest challenges; over the course of a summer, they broaden their perspective on these challenges and experience new approaches to solving them in different cultural contexts.
"I love how Athena seeks to train women to be leaders in an ever-changing world. It aims to strengthen an individual’s talents and history while teaching how to use proven achievement strategies. I love meeting all of the other accomplished and empowered women, whether through Athena mixers or in the workshops."
Elizabeth Bier '21, Neuroscience and Behavior with a cellular and molecular concentration
"I love that Athena provides connections and allows you to meet leaders from all types of industries. The events and leadership labs are the perfect examples of this."

"I had the opportunity to receive the Williams Fellowship this year, and am so grateful to Athena for providing me the support I needed to take my dream internship on Capitol Hill!"
