Ida B. Wells Graduate Student Fellowship

Application Deadline: May 15, 2021

  • For ABD doctoral students in any department
  • Working on a historical dissertation that interrogates race and gender
  • Award of $1,000
  • Must be a Coordinating Council for Women in History (CCWH) member

The Coordinating Council for Women in History (CCWH), an organization for women in the historical profession, is committed to exploring the diverse experiences and histories of all women. Its primary goals are to educate men and women on the status of women in the historical profession and to promote research and interpretation in areas of women’s history.

The CCWH Ida B. Wells Graduate Student Fellowship is an annual award of $1000 given to a graduate student working on a historical dissertation that interrogates race and gender, not necessarily in a history department. The award is intended to support either a crucial stage of research or the final year of writing.

Eligibility

The applicant must be a CCWH member; must be a graduate student in any department of a U.S. institution; must have passed to A.B.D. status by the time of application; may hold this award and others simultaneously; and need not attend the award ceremony to receive the award.
