Pembroke Center

Graduate Student Research Funding

The Pembroke Center supports graduate student research and professional development through five programs: Steinhaus/Zisson Pembroke Center research grants; the Marie J. Langlois Dissertation Prize; Pembroke Seminar graduate student fellowships; fellowships through the Graduate School's Interdisciplinary Opportunities in the Humanities and Social Sciences; and summer proctorships.

Graduate Fellowships provide an enhanced context for advanced doctoral students, including the opportunity for presentation of work and benefits or critique from an exciting group of Pembroke Center Faculty Fellows, Postdoctoral Fellows and distinguished Visiting Fellows.
Summer Proctorship positions provide a project-based, internship-style experience and provide graduate students with new professional and career development opportunities to enhance their experience and skills. The Pembroke Center hosts proctors through its Pembroke Center Archives Feminist Theory Project and via differences: A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies.
Steinhaus/Zisson grants support undergraduate and graduate student research at the Pembroke Center. Student research may be on any topic related to the work of the Pembroke Center, with preference given to research on women's education, health, community activism, philanthropy, and economic status, and women's rights and well-being in the United States and in developing countries around the world.
The Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women annually awards the Marie J. Langlois Dissertation Prize for an outstanding dissertation in the area of feminist studies.
