Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowship in Women’s Studies - The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation

CLOSING DATE: October 15, 2018


JOB #: 12979

POSTED: September 7, 2018


Application Deadline: October 15, 2018


The Women’s Studies Fellowships are provided to Ph.D. candidates at institutions in the United States who will complete their dissertations during the fellowship year. The most competitive applications include not only a clear, thorough, and compelling description of the candidate’s work, but also evidence of an enduring interest in and commitment to women’s issues and scholarship on women and gender.

The Women’s Studies competition is for projects in the humanities and social sciences; projects in fields such as management, the clinical and biological sciences, and law are not eligible unless they have a demonstrable academic grounding in the humanities and social sciences. Applicants working on health-related issues in the social sciences should consider carefully whether their work demonstrably centers on the topic’s social, cultural, and individual aspects.

The 2019 Fellowship competition will select ten Fellows who will receive $5,000 to be used for expenses connected with completing their dissertations, such as research-related travel, data work/collection, and supplies.

Additional Details:


Eligible applicants must:

  • Have completed all pre-dissertation requirements
  • Be writing on issues related to women, gender, women’s studies or feminist/gender/LGBTQ theory
  • Be enrolled in a graduate school in the United States
  • Have an area of study in the humanities or social sciences
  • Expect to complete the Ph.D. by summer 2020
