Academic Enrichment Grants for Women’s Studies Majors

Need research funds? Help with travel or registration fees to participate in an academic or leadership conference/workshop?

About the Grant

Undergraduate women’s studies majors at UMD are eligible to apply for academic enrichment grants to fund research, participation in academic or leadership conferences and workshops or other activities that will enhance their education in women’s, gender and/or sexuality studies.

How to Apply

Awards are up to $500 per student. To apply, send a 250-500 word statement about the project/conference/workshop/organizing meeting, etc. for which you are requesting funding and indicate how you see this relating to your work in women’s studies. Also submit a resume, budget, the name of one professor who can serve as a recommender and, if applicable, a list of any other sources from which you are requesting funding for this same project. If applying for an activity that occurred prior to the application deadline, please submit copies of receipts to accompany your budget.

Application materials should be emailed to wmst@umd.edu with “Academic Enrichment Grant” in the subject line. Applications submitted after the scheduled October 15 and March 15 deadlines will be considered if there are any remaining academic enrichment funds for the semester.

For questions about these grants or assistance with developing your proposal, please talk with Gwen Warman, undergraduate advisor, at gwarman@umd.edu, or make an appointment by visiting http://ter.ps/WmstAppt  and selecting an available slot.
