The Luann Dummer Center for Women is offering an undergraduate fellowship and a graduate fellowship to students who will conduct research on topics related to girls or women. The application deadline is Friday, April 15.

Undergraduate proposals are accepted from students in all academic disciplines who will be juniors or seniors during the year of the fellowship. Full-time and part-time students in all graduate programs are invited to apply for the 2011-12 graduate awards. Students must be enrolled at St. Thomas during most or all of this time period. The grant recipient can complete his or her research during the 2011-2012 academic year, or during the summer of 2011. 

Students who apply must:

  • Secure a faculty sponsor.
  • Present research questions and goals, along with a timetable.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of current literature and research methods.
  • Indicate how the proposed research fits into the student’s development as a research scholar.

Both fellowship recipients will receive $4,000 stipends to support their research, and $1,500 stipends will be provided to their faculty sponsors.
