To encourage research on women and their contributions to society, and to promote active learning and scholarship, the Gannon Center for Women and Leadership is pleased to sponsor the Faculty Fellowship Program in Women's Studies Scholarship. Funded by the Gannon Center's Endowment, up to two fellows will be appointed for the Spring semester each year and released from a semester of teaching. (The fellowship does not include release from the faculty member's other departmental or college duties. Faculty applying for the program should negotiate these duties with his/her chair and/or Dean.) Special consideration will be given to the study of women and leadership.
The Fellowship Program is designed to support:
- Original research on women and leadership
- Research using the resources of Women and Leadership Archives
- Research in women's studies scholarship
- Strengthening women's studies teaching/coursework at the graduate or undergraduate level
These are not traditional "leaves of absences" where faculty work on only independent projects, but rather opportunities for active engagement in the Center to enrich their research, including the possibility of interdisciplinary collaboration. This fellowship will also lead to enhancement of the participants' department in a significant manner.
Fellows will meet twice during the semester with the Gannon Center staff to share progress on their research. At the end of the semester, or the first part of the following semester, fellows will formally present their research or course design as part of the Women's Studies Program, or in another forum, as the culminating event of the Fellowship Program. The Fellows may also participate in the Graduate Scholars Program.
Preference will be ordinarily given to those who have not received a Fellowship.
