CCWH/Berks Graduate Student Fellowship 2013

graduate student in a history department in a U.S. institution; must have

CCWH Ida B. Wells Graduate Student Fellowship 2013
The Coordinating Council for Women in History Ida B. Wells Graduate
Student Fellowship is an annual award of $1000 given to a graduate student
working on a historical dissertation that interrogates race and gender,
not necessarily in a history department. The award is intended to support
either a crucial stage of research or the final year of writing. The
applicant must be a CCWH member; must be a graduate student in any
department of a U.S. institution; must have passed to A.B.D. status by the
time of application; may hold this award and others simultaneously; and

Catharine Prelinger Memorial Award 2013
The CCWH will award $20,000 to a scholar, with a Ph.D. or A.B.D., who has
not followed a traditional academic path of uninterrupted and completed
secondary, undergraduate, and graduate degrees leading to a tenure-track
faculty position. Although the recipient’s degrees do not have to be in
history, the recipient’s work should clearly be historical in nature. In
accordance with the general goals of CCWH, the award is intended to
recognize or to enhance the ability of the recipient to contribute
significantly to women in history, whether in the profession in the
present or in the study of women in the past. It is not intended that
there be any significant restrictions placed on how a given recipient
shall spend the award as long as it advances the recipient’s scholarship
goals and purposes. All recipients will be required to submit a final
paper to CCWH on how the award was expended and summarizing the scholarly
work completed. The deadline for the award is 15 September 2013. Please go
to www.theccwh.org for membership and application details.
