CLA-RIDGS Gender Policy Report GRPP Summer Fellowship
The College of Liberal Arts and the RIDGS Initiative are pleased to announce that there will be two Gender Policy Report GRPP Summer Fellowships in 2021. Each fellowship is a $4000 award that will be paid over five pay periods during the summer.

Immigration and Refugees

Fellows are expected to produce two blog posts for the Gender Policy Report website during this summer or early fall. These may be co-authored with the faculty curator. (Examples of previous posts authored by GRPP fellows include California’s New Gig Worker Protections Leave Domestic Workers Behind and Women and War: Using Gender to Predict Conflicts.)
The Gender Policy Report is a project of the Center on Women, Gender, and Public Policy at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.
Application and Deadline
Applicants should specify the types of projects they intend to work on, describe how working with faculty curators will enhance their own research, and note how their research interests intersect with the aims of the Gender Policy Report. A completed application and proposal must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 AM on April 5, 2021. The completed application will include the GRPP application form, a single-spaced 2-3-page research proposal, a 2-page CV, and an unofficial transcript.
A committee of faculty from RIDGS units and curators from the Gender Policy Report will review applications and determine awards based on eligibility and merit of the submitted proposals. We will also take into account your current funding availability and whether or not you have held GRPPs in the past.
CLA students from any discipline are eligible to apply. Recipients of the RIDGS-Gender Policy Report Summer Fellowships are not eligible for other internal fellowships during summer 2021 (e.g. CLA DOVE Summer Fellowships, Graduate School Dissertation Fellowships, department fellowships). As a condition of the award, recipients may not register for courses during the summer term and may only hold up to a 25% appointment during the summer.
Students from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs can apply for the Gender Policy Report Summer Fellowship, a similar award, through the Humphrey School.
In addition to submitting content for the Gender Policy Report website, each CLA RIDGS-Gender Policy Report Fellowship recipient must submit a 1-2 page report summarizing their accomplishments during the fellowship period. Fellows will receive a form outlining exactly what information is required. This report should be submitted to email@example.com (with a cc to firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 8, 2021.
