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.
The Feminist Research Institute is now accepting applications for graduate student research and travel grants. Grants of up to $500 each will be awarded in Fall 2016. 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.
