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.
* Important: Please read Yale’s Travel Policy here. Faculty, students, and staff must complete the travel self-assessment when making plans to travel internationally.
The next application deadline is February 8, 2023.
