In Fall 2017, WFF launched its Seed Grant program and began accepting applications from undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty. These grants identify innovative ways to support the WFF mission by investing in the diverse work of scholars at Yale. We extend this program to support our tripartite mission of fostering gender equity throughout the University via policy initiatives and research; promoting scholarship on women and gender across the university; and promoting mentorship, collaboration, and networking. The program aims to expand research in areas of gender study and build visibility for issues and policies relating to gender in higher education.
We have one application cycle each semester with the following deadlines: November 1, 2018 and February 1, 2019. However, if you find that you have a project that you would like to submit, we will consider out of cycle applications on a case by case basis. In May 2019, winners will present their projects at a poster session.
