Grants and Fellowships

The Center for the Study of Women in Society maintains a number of grant programs to support the work on women and gender initiated by University of Oregon faculty, staff, and graduate students. By providing these highly competitive grants and fellowships, CSWS consistently has supported many important research projects at various stages of development and enriched programs in all sectors of the university. The Center has offered research funding to faculty and graduate students at the University of Oregon for more than 30 consecutive years.
