The Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership accepts applications for faculty fellowships and grants for research that is aligned with the center’s mission. 

Faculty Research Fellows

The CWIL Faculty Research Fellow Grants support research on gender, women, and/or girls and are open to faculty of all departments, disciplines, and ranks. Successful proposals will make a compelling case for the significance of the project and its potential to make a tangible contribution toward greater gender equity. Successful proposals must indicate how research is inclusive across many forms of difference. Priority will be given to proposals that demonstrate a commitment to intersectional methods and theories. Faculty Research Fellows hold affiliation with CWIL for one academic year.

Applications are due September 22, 2023.
