Funding Opportunities

PhD students in Gender & Women’s Studies are offered 5 years of guaranteed funding (salary at the 50% level, tuition remission, and health benefits). MA students in Gender and Women’s Studies receive 2 years of guaranteed funding support through Teaching Assistantships (salary at the 50% level, tuition remission, and health benefits). These funding guarantees refer to the 9-month academic year. The Department does its best to provide summer support.

The funding for PhD students may come in a combination of internal fellowships (e.g., University Fellowship, Graduate Research Scholars Fellowship), Teaching Assistantships, Project Assistantships, Research Assistantships, and external fellowships for which you apply.

Graduate Student Professional Development Funds

MA and PhD students in the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies can apply to the GWS Graduate Committee using this form for funds to cover travel and other expenses related to conference participation or research. We encourage students to apply well ahead of their conference or research related travel and no later than one month before the funds are to be used.
