For activities that contribute to the professional development of graduate students in the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
To strengthen our commitment to have a more diverse and inclusive graduate student population and further the scholarship of underrepresented scholars in the field, we will offer additional research and dissertation support for WGSS graduate students to support their professional goals and leadership in academia.
This fund has allowed us to extend Graduate Enrichment Grants to six of our incoming graduate students. These scholarships have allowed the students to make the transition to Columbus during their first years as graduate students.
Additionally, each year we send a limited number of graduate students to present their work at the National Women's Studies Association Conference, the American Studies Association Conference, and the Duke Feminist Theory Workshop in addition to a variety of other colloquia and symposia.
