Honorary Fellowship for Visiting Scholars

The Center for Research on Gender & Women at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites applications to its Honorary Fellows Program. Scholars from other academic institutions or independent scholars wishing to take advantage of the university’s research facilities and extensive women’s studies library holdings may apply for a one-year unfunded position. The program is open to applications from all disciplines that propose research projects in women’s and gender studies. We welcome both U.S.-based and foreign scholars.

Fellows will have access to research space, library privileges, and email. Scholars are expected to have their own funding to support their stay. They are encouraged to attend events sponsored by the Women’s Studies Program and Research Center and are expected to give a lecture about their research.

Criteria for selection include: Ph.D., another terminal degree, or the equivalent in research experience; demonstrated research productivity; and a proposed project of relevance to women’s studies. Applicants need not have a current academic affiliation.

Applications should include:

  • Description of the research project that also explains its significance (1,500 – 2,000 words)
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Copies of one or two of the applicant’s most significant recent publications

Application deadline: Rolling Deadline

Applications should be submitted to: emorris@wisc.edu
