The Institute for Research on Women and Gender has awarded 23 graduate students funding to support wide-ranging projects related to women, gender, and sexuality.
IRWG/Rackham Graduate Student Research Awards and IRWG/Rackham Community of Scholars summer fellowships were granted to students from 17 disciplines, ranging from the arts and humanities to social sciences and engineering.
The Boyd/Williams Fellowship for Research on Women and Work was awarded to Emma Thomas, Ph.D. candidate in history, and Germanic languages and literatures.
The students were selected from a highly competitive pool. Their diverse set of projects demonstrates the scope of women and gender studies at U-M.
