Luann Dummer Center for Women Offers Undergraduate, Graduate Fellowships

The Luann Dummer Center for Women is offering an undergraduate fellowship and a graduate fellowship to students who will conduct research on an array of topics from a feminist perspective (issues of gender, intersection of gender and other social issues or identities, representations or empowerment of women and girls).

Proposals are accepted from undergraduate students in all academic disciplines who will be juniors or seniors during the year of the fellowship, and from part-time or full-time graduate students in all academic disciplines. Students must be enrolled at UST during most or all of this time period.

Grant recipients can complete their research during summer 2013 or the 2013-2014 academic year.

Students who apply must:

  • Secure a faculty sponsor
  • Present research questions and goals, along with a timetable
  • Demonstrate knowledge of current literature and research methods
  • Indicate how the proposed research fits into the student’s development as a research scholar

Fellowship recipients will receive $4,000 stipends to support their research; faculty sponsors will receive $1,500 stipends.

Visit the Luann Dummer Center for Women website for application procedures. The application deadline is Friday, March 15.
