For Junior Faculty:
TCPW Summer Stipends

The Trustees' Council of Penn Women offers three $3,000 summer research stipends to female faculty, or faculty members whose research is centrally concerned with the role of women in society, science, or arts and letters.*

These awards are given to assist in the promotion of standing faculty to the permanent rank of Associate Professor. The Trustees' Council has decided that those who have already won an award are eligible to apply again. Those who have previously applied and did not receive an award are also encouraged to apply again.

If you are interested in applying for the stipend, please submit a 2-page summary of the research you wish to undertake, an explanation of how the stipend will facilitate the research, a curriculum vitae, and the name of a University reference. In your application please stress how you will use the award and why it would be particularly useful to you at this time. The summary should be sent by Friday, February 26, to:

Professor Ann Matter, Acting Director
The Alice Paul Research Center
411 Logan Hall
249 S. 36th St./6403

Research proposals will be reviewed, and the stipend awarded, through a peer review process. It is expected that the research, or a significant subset thereof, will be concluded during the summer of 1999, and a written report will be submitted to the review panel and to the Trustees' Council. Any subsequent publication of the research results should acknowledge the support of the Council.


* The amount of the award varies according to whether the recipient chooses to receive it as salary or to use it for research expenses.
