Research Grants for Graduate Students

Graduate Student Research Grants

Available to UO graduate students, these grants support research and/or creative work on women and gender from a range of disciplines (up to $3,000). Lower priority for CSWS Graduate Research Grants will be given to those students who have already received one in the previous two years. This will not affect students applying for the Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship.



Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship

This prestigious fellowship, honoring Jane Grant—early feminist and wife of CSWS’s benefactor, William Harris—is given annually to an outstanding scholar writing a dissertation on women and gender. Only UO graduate students who have been advanced to candidacy (or will be by the date of the award) are eligible to be considered for this competitive fellowship, which carries a stipend of $18,000, plus additional benefits.

CSWS also offers a $3,000 Graduate Writing Fellowship to doctoral students who are in the early stages of dissertation writing. The intent of this competitive fellowship is to provide a summer writing stipend to one or more top finalists for the Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship. All Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship applicants will automatically be considered for the writing stipend.
