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.
Students in doctoral programs who have completed all pre-dissertation requirements in any field of study at graduate schools in the United States. Candidates who are within a few months of completing their work should not apply.
