The Women’s Studies Fellowships are provided to Ph.D. candidates at institutions in the United States who will complete their dissertations during the fellowship year. The most competitive applications include not only a clear, thorough, and compelling description of the candidate’s work, but also evidence of an enduring interest in and commitment to women’s issues and scholarship on women and gender. The Women’s Studies Fellowships are administered by the Institute for Citizens and Scholars, formerly known as the WW Foundation.
A $5,000 award will be given to these fellows for the expenses connected with completing their dissertations, such as research-related travel, data work/collection, and supplies. Eligible proposals from applicants in the humanities and social sciences will have a central focus, the study of women and/or gender. Candidates should expect to complete their dissertation between March and August of 2023.
Eligible applicants for the 2022 Women’s Studies Fellowship will be enrolled in a graduate school in the United States, studying in the field of humanities or social sciences, and writing on issues related to women, gender, women’s studies, or feminist/gender/LGBTQ theory. They’ll also have completed all pre-dissertation requirements and expecting to complete their Ph.D. by summer of 2023.
Understanding that dissertation completion timelines may change or extend for various reasons, applicants who have applied for the Women’s Studies Fellowship within the last two years and did not receive the award when they first applied may now reapply if their revised timeline meets the Fellowship guidelines for completion and defense.
Deadline to apply October 15, 2021.
