Does Your Social Justice Work Affect the Lives of Women or Girls?
Do You Have a Special Project You’d Love to Have the Time, Space and Support to Pursue?


If so, learn more about the Twink Frey Visiting Social Activist Program at the University of Michigan’s Center for the Education of Women. CEW has worked for over 40 years to reduce the barriers women face in their career, academic and life pursuits.
Our program provides the time, space and support for selected activists to work on projects that would not be possible under their usual working circumstances.

A four-week stay in Ann Arbor, Michigan, gives the activist time for reflection, research, planning and writing. We pay a stipend, housing and travel expenses. Activists are required to create a product that will advance their future work and potentially benefit other activists. This product may be a report, plan of action, communication strategy, training tool, etc.


CEW is soliciting candidates for Visiting Social Activist positions during the 2011-12 & 2012-13 academic years. If you would like to nominate someone, or apply for the program yourself, visit: http://www.cew.umich.edu/cewaction/activists.html
