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 16.

Undergraduate proposals are accepted from students in all academic disciplines who will be juniors or seniors during the year of the fellowship. Graduate proposals are accepted from full-time and part-time students in all graduate programs. 

Students must be enrolled at UST during most or all of this time period. The grant recipients can complete their research during the 2010-11 academic year, or during summer 2010. 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; and, 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.
