The Woodrow Wilson Foundation Announces Women's Studies Fellows for 2016

Modified: April 13, 2016

On April 12, the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation announced ten new Fellows who are joining the ranks of the Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowship in Women’s Studies. Included on that list are two Northwestern Students, Jaimie Morse (Sociology) and Sarah Roth (English).

The WW Women’s Studies Fellowship supports the final year of dissertation writing for Ph.D. candidates in the humanities and social sciences whose work addresses women’s and gendered issues in interdisciplinary and original ways. Each Fellow is granted $5,000 for expenses such as research-related travel, data work/collection, and supplies connected with completing their dissertations. In addition, their dissertation titles are publicized with leading scholarly publishers at the conclusion of the dissertation year. 

Now in its 42nd year, the WW Women’s Studies Fellowship is still the only national dissertation award for doctoral work on women’s and gendered issues. The program has supported more than 525 Ph.D.s in various fields and includes a Pulitzer Prize winner, two MacArthur Fellows, eight Guggenheim Fellows, a number of Fulbright Fellows, and many others who have achieved significant distinctions in their fields. 

Congratulations Jaimie and Sarah!
