About the TCPW Faculty Research Grant: The
Trustees’ Council of Penn Women (TCPW) wishes to assist Associate Professors
working for promotion to Full Professor, as well as Assistant Professors
seeking promotion to the permanent rank of Associate Professor. In
support of this goal, TCPW offers at least three research
grants, up to $5,000 each, to female faculty, or faculty members whose research
is centrally concerned with the role of women in society, science, or arts and
letters. We are very
grateful to the Trustees' Council of Penn Women for their support of women
faculty at Penn.
