Trustees Council of Penn Women:
Summer Research Stipends

The Trustees Council of Penn Women awards two $3000* summer research stipends to female faculty members or faculty members whose research directly affects women. These awards are given to assist in the promotion of standing faculty to the permanent rank of Associate Professor.

Those interested in applying for the stipend should submit a one to two page summary of the research they wish to undertake, an explanation of how the stipend will facilitate the research, a curriculum vitae, and the name of a University reference. In the application, it should be stressed how the award will be used and why it would be particularly useful at this time. The summary should be sent to Dr. Demie Kurz, co-director, Alice Paul Research Center, Suite 590, 3440 Market Street/3325 no later than March 4, 1996.

Research proposals will be reviewed, and the stipend awarded, through a peer review process. It is expected that the research, or a significant subset thereof, will be concluded during the summer of 1996, and a written report will be submitted to the review panel and to the Trustees' Council. Any subsequent publication of the research results will acknowledge the support of the Council.


* Note: Taxes and Benefits are deducted from the awards.
