Center for Feminist Research Fellows - Applying

  

ANNUAL CALL FOR NEW DIRECTIONS FELLOWS:

Each spring, the Center for Feminist Research will invite proposals from USC faculty, advanced graduate students, and resident artists in any school or discipline at USC for New Directions Fellowships. Fellows must propose ongoing research projects related broadly to the seminar’s theme. Fellows are expected to attend all seminar meetings and events, to present their work to the seminar, and help plan any public programming related to the year’s seminar. They are expected to produce a completed project at end of the seminar, (for example, a monograph chapter, article, multimedia project, performance, or major grant proposal.)  Faculty fellows will each receive $2500 in research funding, graduate students will receive $1000. The call for seminar fellows will be posted on this page during the period we are accepting applications.
