Spring 2017 FRI Graduate Student Research Grants

Posted: Jan 30, 2017 - 12:00pm

Application deadline: TBD for Spring 2017 research

The Feminist Research Institute will soon be accepting applications for graduate student research and travel grants. Grants of up to $750 each will be awarded in Spring 2017. These small grants are intended to support feminist research or projects focused on the study of gender and/or sexuality. Proposals to support dissertation and thesis-related research are particularly encouraged. The grants may be used to support travel expenses and materials related to research projects, but may not be used for travel to conferences and research presentations.

Proposals for interdisciplinary projects are particularly welcome, and master's and doctoral students in any UNM graduate program, including the HSC and School of Law, are welcome to apply.


Spring 2016 FRI Small Events Grants

Posted: Oct 16, 2015 - 12:00am

Application deadline: Monday, November 2 for Spring 2016 events

The Feminist Research Institute is now accepting applications for small grants to fund campus events focused on issues of gender and/or sexuality, or on feminist theory or practice. We are offering grants of up to $250 each to support campus events during Spring 2016. UNM faculty or graduate students may submit proposals, and proposed events may include (but are not limited to) mini-conferences, exhibits, speaker or film series, performances, panel discussions, or workshops. We are particularly interested in projects that promise to stimulate interest in or encourage innovative feminist work across disciplinary boundaries and that bring together a combination of faculty, graduate students, and/or community scholars or activists.

Our Mission

The Feminist Research Institute is dedicated to the production of scholarship on women, gender, and sexuality, and to the creation of intellectual community among feminist scholars at UNM. UNM has a large number of feminist faculty and graduate students, and the Institute offers an opportunity to meet and work with others both within and across disciplines.
