The Study of Women in Asia Fellowship supports one to two graduate students from any discipline whose research concerns women in Asia, broadly defined. This award provides three quarters of TGR tuition plus three quarters of stipend at $5,000.
Stanford graduate students in any discipline conducting research on topics concerning women in Asia are eligible to apply.
The fellowship may be used to support graduate coursework*, research on campus or abroad, or dissertation write-up.
Applicants may be U.S. citizens or international students.
