The Institute for Teaching and Research on Women (ITROW) seeks to promote scholarship, course development and programming on issues related to women/gender, including the intersections of gender with race/ethnicity, nation, class, disability, and/or sexuality. To this end, ITROW is initiating a faculty mini-grants award program. Awards will range from $100 to $500, are limited in number, and will be awarded on a competitive basis. ITROW seeks to sponsor activities such as:
New course development within the faculty’s department/discipline which will produce a course to be cross-listed (counted toward) the Women’s and Gender Studies major. Substantial restructuring/transformation of a current course with the goal of integrating women/gender topics throughout the syllabus will also be considered. Faculty receiving course development awards will consult with the Director of ITROW in the development or restructuring of a course and will be expected to offer the new or transformed course within a year of having received the grant.
Scholarship focused on women/gender issues, or scholarship which contains a significant women/gender component. Faculty receiving awards for scholarship will be required to present their research/artistic creation in ITROW’s Women and Gender Faculty Colloquy series. Travel funds for presentation of such scholarship at conferences will also be considered.
Campus-wide or departmental events focused on women/gender issues such as speakers, film series, and conferences.
During the academic year, grants may be requested to cover specified expenses e.g., books or materials purchases, travel expenses to conduct research, transcription costs, etc.
During summer, monetary awards can be granted.
