The Duke Graduate School is offering a summer research fellowship for a graduate student in public policy, social sciences, or the humanities who is doing research on women or girls of color. This fellowship is part of Duke’s alliance with the White House Council on Women and Girls and the Collaborative on Women and Girls of Color led by the Anna Julia Cooper Center of Wake Forest University.
Applicants whose research is focused on public data, intersectional histories, contemporary issues, events and narratives, or interpretive cultural studies in humanities and the arts about women or girls of color are encouraged to apply.
The fellowship will pay a stipend of $5,500 for the period from June 1 to August 31, plus summer tuition and health fee.
- Applicants must be in good academic standing.
- Applicants must be in their third academic year of study (third summer) or beyond during the fellowship term.
- Applicants must be currently enrolled in a Duke Ph.D. program that does not already guarantee 12 months of financial support.
- Students may receive up to $1,850 for the summer from other funding sources. Dean’s Graduate Fellows, NSF GRFP fellows on tenure, and students who will be working as research or teaching assistants during the summer are not eligible.
- Approval from your department (see step 1 below)
- Your CV (PDF)
- A copy of your current Duke transcript or ACES report (PDF)
- A brief description (in PDF format) of your research and how it will support the Collaborative on Women and Girls of Color, your interests, and why it would be particularly important to be free of service obligations this summer. This should be no more than 3 pages, using 1-inch margins, 1.5 line spacing, and Arial 12-point font. OPTIONAL: You may also include an additional 1-page bibliography.
