Re:Gender Mariam K. Chamberlain Dissertation Award

Application deadline:   May 27, 2016

Re:Gender, formerly National Council for Research on Women, was established in 1981 by a group of feminist researchers who were looking to connect their similar organizations and promote research by and about women. The Mariam K. Chamberlain Dissertation Award creates an opportunity for a first-generation college graduate, including immigrant students, to continue working on a dissertation under the close supervision of a senior dissertation advisor over an academic year.

The student must have completed all course work; have a dissertation advisor; and expect to have passed all preliminary examinations (i.e., ABD status) by the time the award begins in August 2016. This award is not restricted to U.S. citizens.

$10,000 will be awarded annually: $8,500 to a graduate student (preference is to award a student who identifies as a woman); and $1,500 to the student’s dissertation advisor for travel expenses related to the award.

The student’s dissertation must be related to Re:Gender’s mission to end gender inequity and its three program focus areas: Identity (social construction of gender, including intersections of race, class, sexual orientation, sexual identity, ability, geography, etc., as well as discrimination based on gender); Economic well-being (issues of economic justice, work fairness and business leadership); and Thriving environments (from personal safety, e.g., sexual assault, to community and global concerns, e.g., climate change and civic leadership).
