About the TCPW Summer Research Stipend: The Trustees' Council of Penn Women offers three $5,000 summer research stipends to female faculty, or faculty members whose research is centrally concerned with the role of women in society, science, or arts and letters. The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women assists Associate Professors working for promotion to Full Professor, as well as Assistant Professors seeking promotion to the permanent rank of Associate Professor. We are very grateful to the Trustees' Council of Penn Women for their support of women faculty at Penn.
