The Graduate School funds two dissertation fellowships housed in the Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies Program.
In order to encourage Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies students to attend interdisciplinary events, to present their research at academic or professional conferences, and to take part in special projects where they can deepen their feminist education, the program offers travel and research funding each year. A limited number of grants of up to $500 each (as reimbursement, per university policy) are available to students twice a year.
In addition, the GSF graduate program offers a separate $500 travel award to any Duke graduate student presenting a paper (i.e., that is accepted) at the National Women's Studies Association (NWSA) annual conference.
Thanks to the generosity of donors, Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies administers named awards to currently enrolled Duke students in recognition of outstanding research and service: The Ernestine Friedl Research Award , The Gender and Race Award, The Dora Anne Little Award, and The Anne McDougall Memorial Award (through History). Each award has specific requirements and requires separate applications for each award.
