Women in German Professional Development Award for contingent faculty.
Recognizing that contingent faculty members comprise two-thirds of teaching faculty at colleges and universities today and that these faculty members often lack access to traditional funding sources, Women in German created a new fund in 2014 specifically for contingent faculty. One award in the amount of $1500 will be granted in 2015 to support professional development opportunities or projects relevant to feminist German Studies.
