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.
