Women & Gender Studies Award

Scholarship awarded for the Spring semester

  • Awarding Department: Women and Gender Studies
  • Scholarship Intent: The Women and Gender Studies Undergraduate Award recognizes one WGS major or minor who has not only demonstrated excellence in academics, but has applied the feminist commitments of the department (engagement with the larger community, critical thinking and analysis, and working toward social justice) beyond the classroom. This can be broadly defined, for instance, as work with an internship, in other kinds of work places, on the campus, with community organizing and/or at home.
  • Criteria: WGS300 instructors will be asked to nominate students based on a combination of factors consistent with the intent of the award, including students’ broader feminist commitments among peers and in their communities, and/or discussions of their broader feminist commitments in a final paper. Nominating papers and/or descriptions will be sent to the selection committee, who will select an awardee.
