Travel Scholarships

The Gender & Sexuality Studies Ph.D. Certificate Program makes available limited, competitively awarded funding to assist graduate students in the certificate program who present their research at professional conferences.

Graduate students who are in the Gender & Sexuality Studies Certificate Program and on a conference program may apply, 60 days in advance of the conference, to receive up to $250 towards travel and hotel expenses.

Please apply by email to Nicholas Davis, Director of Graduate Studies, nicholas-davis@northwestern.edu.

Applicants must include your name, the date, your program or department, information about the conference (when, where, what), the title of your paper, and a 100 word abstract.

Applications are accepted (and scholarships are awarded) on a rolling basis. Four scholarships are awarded per year.

SPAN (The Sexualities Project at Northwestern) also has a number of funding opportunities for graduate students. Please consult their website for more information.
