GenCen Faculty Fellows Program

DSC_0006.JPGGenCen Faculty Fellows will teach Women’s and Gender Studies (WS) courses, and receive support for their scholarship in gender, sexuality, and feminist studies. Faculty from the College of Arts and Letters (tenure-stream and fixed-term), the College of Social Science (tenure-stream only), and the College of Education (tenure-stream only) are eligible to apply for the Fellows program.

Fellows will teach one course per year for a three-year commitment (two-year commitment for College of Education Fellows), and will receive $3,000 annually for their research and scholarship ($2,000 provided by the GenCen and $1,000 from their home college). The GenCen will work with the Fellows’ home departments to ensure that their GenCen teaching, research, and service is included and valued in their annual reviews. Fellows are also invited to join the Faculty Fellows Learning Community, where they can share their work, discuss collaborations with other GenCen Associated Faculty/Staff, and receive grant-writing consultation.
