Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship

The prestigious Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship, honoring Jane Grant—early feminist and wife of CSWS’s benefactor William Harris—is given annually to an outstanding scholar writing a dissertation on women and gender. Only UO graduate students who have been advanced to candidacy (or will be by the date of the award) are eligible to be considered for this competitive fellowship, which carries a stipend of $18,000, plus additional benefits.

CSWS also offers a $3,000 Graduate Writing Completion Fellowship to doctoral students who are in the early stages of dissertation writing. The intent of this competitive fellowship is to provide a summer writing stipend to one or more top finalists for the Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship. All Jane Grant Dissertation Fellowship applicants will automatically be considered for the writing stipend.

Post-Award Obligations for Grant Recipients

At the end of the grant period, all CSWS grant recipients are obligated to submit a report about your research progress and outcomes at the end of the grant period. The report is due by September 30 (three months from the end of the grant period). Failure to submit final reports will result in ineligibility for future CSWS grants. (Note: Writing an article for the Annual Review does not fulfill this obligation, though your report may be adapted from an article.)

Tracking the outcomes and impacts of CSWS funded research is very important to our mission. Notify CSWS about any conference presentations; academic, popular, or creative publications in any format; additional project grants and job opportunities; and any other outcomes that result from CSWS funded research. 

In addition, grant recipients must acknowledge CSWS support in all presentations, publications, and promotional materials—including web publications and web sites, videos, and/or creative work—resulting from their grant.
