The Dissertation Fellowship in Women's Studies encourages original and significant research about women that crosses disciplinary, regional, or cultural boundaries.
Previous fellows have explored such topics as women's role in African-American adult literacy, militarism and the education of American women.
The Women's Studies Fellowships are provided to PhD candidates at institutions in the United States who will complete their dissertations during the fellowship year.
To be eligible, applicants must have completed all pre-dissertation requirements;
Fellows receive $5,000 to be used for expenses connected with the dissertation.
The application process for the Women's Studies Fellowship competition starts at the end of August every year.
