Ambereen Toubassy ‘94 WGSS Graduate Student Research Grant Application
Thanks to a generous recent gift from Ambereen Toubassy, Class of 1994, the WGSS Program is happy to announce a new funding resource for graduate students in the WGSS Certificate or PhD programs. Up to seven WGSS graduate students per year will receive up to $700 each towards travel* to an academic conference related to their work in the Certificate or PhD. WGSS understands that those who do interdisciplinary scholarship often need to attend multiple conferences a year, and we are grateful to be able to support the professional development of our Certificate and PhD students. Applications will be accepted twice a year, in February and October, with priority given to those who are presenting papers and who lack other sources of funding. Note that the award does not cover food expenses.
Toubassy funds cannot provide reimbursement for expenses already incurred.
