Opportunities for Women’s Studies Scholars

Spring has sprung, and despite the low temps in Iowa City ( 21°!), we are ready to think about spring funding opportunities!

Today, I want to focus attention on a handful of opportunities for those folks who focus on women’s issues, education, and health. Here are a couple of opportunities with rapidly approaching deadlines:


1) Awards for The National Women’s Studies Association (various)

2) Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS) (studies of women and cancer)

*** Here is a list with many more!

It’s baaaack! But not for long. The Fulbright-Hays DDRA is now open to graduate students who are US citizens or permanent residents, anticipate doing PhD research abroad, have significant area studies course work at the graduate level, and whose research involves extensive use of a language than English and/or the applicant’s native language. The University of Iowa campus deadline for submission of the DDRA application is 5:00PM Thursday, June 7, 2012. This deadline is required in order to meet the institutional national deadline of 3:30 CST/4:30 PM EST on Thursday, June 14, 2012.

* Note this is a much shorter application period than is normal due to the very late competition cycle. All application materials including all support documents (letters of recommendation, language evaluations, affiliation letters and graduate transcripts) must be submitted electronically by the June 7 deadline.

**If you anticipate applying for the DDRA, please send an email to Jennifer Teitle (dsp-gradgrants@uiowa.edu) and Karen Wachsmuth at International Programs  (karen-wachsmuth@uiowa.edu). Both of us will be able to assist you as you proceed.
