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?

Undergraduate Women’s Studies Majors at UMD are eligible to apply for Academic Enrichment Grants to fund research, or participation in academic or leadership conferences and workshops, or other activities that will enhance your education in women’s, gender, and/or sexuality studies.

Application deadlines are October 15 for projects during the September 2018 to February 2019 time period, and March 15 for projects during the February 2019 to August 2019 time period. Awards are up to $500.00 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. Gwen can be reached at gwarman@umd.edu, or make an appointment by visiting http://ter.ps/WmstAppt and selecting an available slot.
