Leboy-Davies Graduate Fellowship

 

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS for 2014 LEBOY-DAVIES FELLOWSHIP

 

The Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program and the Alice Paul Center for Research on Gender, Sexuality, and Women invite applications for the Leboy-Davies Fellowship. The fellowship was created in honor of Phoebe Leboy and Helen Davies, two pioneering feminist faculty members in the health sciences. It will provide up to $4,000 in research or travel funding to a graduate student whose work will foster women’s health, well-being, and educational equality anywhere in the world, or enhance our understanding of gender inequality. Priority will be given to students who have earned the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Graduate Certificate (or who are currently enrolled in the program),  and to projects leading to the completion of a doctoral dissertation.

 

To apply, please submit the following:

 

  1. A completed Leboy-Davies Fellowship Application Cover Sheet.
  2. A two-page description of your project. This description should clearly state the aims and methods of your research.
  3. A budget detailing how the Leboy-Davies fellowship funds will be used. Please list all other secured sources of funding for your project including the amounts and allocations of these funds. Also, please list all other grants, fellowships, or awards for which you are applying to complete your research and the amounts of each of these potential lines of support.
  4. A Curriculum Vitae.
  5. Two letters of recommendation, preferably from faculty. The letters should discuss either the potential for the applicant’s work to have a palpable beneficial impact on the lives of women and/or girls or the promise of the applicant’s work to enhance our understanding of gender inequality. The letters should be addressed to Professor Christine Poggi, Director of the Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program and the Alice Paul Center for Research on Gender, Sexuality, and Women. Please note, however, that all application materials should be sent to the GSWS Program Coordinator, Luz Marin.
