Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowships in Women's Studies

These fellowships encourage original and significant research about women that cross disciplinary, regional, or cultural boundaries.


Previous Fellows have explored such topics as transnational religious education for Muslim women, the complex gender dynamics of voluntary marriage migration, women’s role in African-American adult literacy, women’s sports, militarism and the education of American women, and the relationship between family commitments and women’s work mobility. Fellows will receive $3,000 to be used for expenses connected with the dissertation. These may include, but are not limited to, travel, books, microfilming, taping, and computer services.
