Opportunities, Grants & Fellowships
As part of its commitment to academic excellence, CSW encourages the development of scholarly and professional skills among UCLA undergraduate students interested in research related to women, gender and sexuality. Through our awards, newsletter, meeting space, and employment, CSW fosters the success of many undergraduates. While student support has always been a part of CSW’s mission, this structure has been extended and formalized through the organization of new opportunities for undergraduate students.
n its twenty-six years as an organized research unit at UCLA, CSW has advanced academic excellence in the study of gender, sexuality, and women’s issues by developing and fostering both faculty and student research and by facilitating productive scholarly relationships across the campus and around the world. Through funding, programming, and employment opportunities, CSW has long supported and advanced the research and professional careers of graduate students at UCLA. In recent years, CSW has dramatically extended and formalized this support through targeted fundraising, innovations in programming structures, and the creation of new scholarly and professional training opportunities. The Graduate Student Initiative is our renewed and extended public commitment to promoting the professional success and academic excellence of graduate students at UCLA. If you have any questions about this initiative, please email CSW at email@example.com
The UCLA Center for the Study of Women (CSW) partners regularly with other UCLA entities to foster innovative scholarship and intellectual community. CSW cosponsors events on a selective basis. The campus-based event must be hosted or initiated by another UCLA unit and have a clear relevance to CSW’s mission of reaching across disciplines to foster a community of scholars studying women, sexuality, and gender.
