This year we are focusing all of our Giving Blueday efforts towards supporting our Community of Scholars graduate fellowship. Founded more than 20 years ago, this competitive four-month summer fellowship brings together PhD candidates who are engaged in scholarly research or other creative projects focusing on women, gender or sexuality from across disciplines and fields. All awardees participate in a weekly seminar led by a professor to workshop a chapter of their dissertation and gain critical feedback from peers in different disciplines. After the two-month-long seminar series, students are afforded significant time and support to continue their research and writing over the summer. The scholars reconvene in the fall to showcase their work at a public symposium.
