American Association of University Women Invites Applications for American Fellowships

Since 1881, the American Association of University Women has worked nationally to improve the lives of millions of women and their families.

The organization currently is inviting applications for its American Fellowships program. Through the program, grants will be awarded to women scholars who are completing dissertations, planning research leave from accredited institutions, or preparing research for publication. Three categories of awards are supported through the program and are open to women scholars in all fields of study.

American Dissertation Fellowships — Grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded to offset a scholar’s living expenses while she completes her dissertation. Fellowships are open to applicants in all fields of study, and women scholars engaged in STEM fields or researching gender issues are especially encouraged to apply. Fellowships must be used for the final year of dissertation writing, and applicants must have completed all course work, passed all preliminary examinations, and received approval for their research proposals or plans by November 1, 2019. The doctoral degree/dissertation must be completed between April 1 and June 30, 2021, and degree conferral must be between April 1 and September 15, 2021.

American Postdoctoral Research Leave Fellowships — Grants of up to $30,000 will be awarded to assist scholars in obtaining tenure and other promotions by enabling them to spend a year pursuing independent research. Fellowship applicants must hold a doctorate classified as a research degree (e.g., PhD, EdD, DBA, DM) or an MFA at the time of application. Tenured professors are not eligible to apply.

American Short-Term Research Publication Grants — Grants of up to $6,000 will be awarded to women college and university faculty preparing research for publication. Grants are awarded to both tenure-track and part-time faculty, as well as new and established researchers, and are designed to assist candidates in obtaining tenure and other promotions. Activities undertaken during the grant period may include drafting, editing, or modifying manuscripts; replicating research components; responding to issues raised through critical review; and other initiatives that increase the likelihood of publication. Applicants must hold a PhD, EdD, DBA, MFA, JD, MD, DMD, DVM, DSW, or MPH at the time of application. Tenured professors are not eligible to apply.

See the American Association of University Women website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previous awardees.
