  • Scholarship Description
  • The Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowship in Women's Studies encourages original and significant research about women that crosses disciplinary, regional, or cultural boundaries. Previous Fellows have explored such topics as transnational religious education for Muslim women, the complex gender dynamics of transidentity management, women's electoral success across racial and institutional contexts, women's sports, militarism and the education of American women, and the relationship between family commitments and women's work mobility.

    The prestigious WW Women's Studies Fellowships support the final year of dissertation writing for Ph.D. candidates in the humanities and social sciences whose work addresses topics of women and gender in interdisciplinary and original ways. Since the first Women's Studies Fellows were named in 1974, over 500 emerging scholars have been funded, many now prominent in their fields.

    The 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.
