Call for Applications: EcoFeminist Summer Internship Experience Grant

From Brenna Diggins ’17:

FGSS and Wesleyan Animal Studies (WAS) call for applications for the Ecofeminist Summer Internship

Experience Grant. The Grant provides up to $3,000 for students working on intersectional issues addressing gender, sexuality, race, class, and species. Students must have a faculty sponsor and ideally, the Grant will support an experience (travel for research, an internship, or other summer project) that will contribute to their senior essay or thesis.

Application Process:
The deadline for applications is, by noon, Monday, February 29, 2016.
Student applications are to be delivered to FGSS AA Jen Enxuto (jenxuto[at]wesleyan[dot]edu) and should be accompanied by a statement of support from the faculty sponsor and an additional letter of recommendation by another professor. The application should include a title, description of project, proposed timeline and detailed budget. Grants can be combined with other funding, as long as the other funding source allows. Grants will typically not exceed $3,000. Recipients of the EcoFeminist Grant must submit a brief report upon completion of the project detailing how this grant enhanced their project, accomplishments and how the funds were used.

Eligibility:
Undergraduates who will be rising juniors or rising seniors by the start date of the grant (Summer 2016) are eligible to apply. Students should have an FGSS background, but need not be majors. Notification of the grant award will be made on Friday, April 1, 2016.

Applications Due: 12:00 PM on Monday, February 29
