Opportunities, Grants & Fellowships
The Consortium for Women and Research is pleased to announce the continuation of its Visiting Scholars Program. Each year we provide a small group of competitively selected domestic and international scholars with university affiliation, library privileges, shared office space (when possible), computer/internet access, and the opportunity to participate in the Consortium’s events.
Graduate Student Travel Awards
Provides funds to graduate students in any field for travel to professional conferences, workshops, or professional events for the purpose of presenting their own research or creative work and for engaging in networking plan of their own construction. Historically, the Consortium has given preference to students in the areas of research for which funding is not easily available. It has also funded students in areas in which women are distinctly under represented.
Travel Awards are to be used for travel from December 15, 2012 through June 30, 2013. Awards limited to $500 domestic and $800 international travel.
First-Year Post-Doctoral Travel Award
These awards provide funding to women in their first year of post-doctoral study in any of the STEM disciplines for travel to professional meetings for the purpose of presenting their
PhD research and implementing a networking plan of their own construction. The consortium gives priority to proposals from scholars whose research focuses on gender and/or who are in STEM fields in which women are distinctly underrepresented.
Outstanding Mentor Awards
Honor Academic Senate and Academic Federation members for mentoring women post-docs and graduate students in research and professional development. They include $500 towards research support.
Graduate Research Awards (GRA)
Funds graduate student research and creative work up to $1,000 in three areas:
- Research about women and gender in its multiple intersections with race, class, sexual and national identity.
- Research that focuses on or leads to the improvement of the lives of girls or women.
- Research in the natural and physical sciences or engineering that advances the Consortium's goals.
Research Interest Group Awards
Research Interest Groups are groups of faculty, graduate students, and postdocs who are engaged in collaborative, interdisciplinary research projects by and about women and/or gender in its intersections with race, class, sexual and national identity, and the like. Provides funds to sponsor Research Interest Groups in order to facilitate collaborative, cross-disciplinary research and inquiry by and about women and about gender in its multiple intersections with race, class, sexual and national identity, create opportunities for cross-disciplinary discussion among scholars, create support groups that assist RIG members in preparing and submitting grant proposals, and build better connections between scholars, policy makers,activists and/or local communities.
