Institute for Research on Women and Gender - University of Michigan


Institute for Research on Women and Gender

Established in 1995, the Institute for Research on Women & Gender (IRWG) is an interdisciplinary unit of the University of Michigan Office of Research, supporting research on women, gender, and sexuality.

Our research vision is interdisciplinary and broadly inclusive of the creative and performing arts as well as the humanities, social sciences, and the sciences. IRWG is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in research and across our scholarly communities.

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.
