INTERSECTIONS Travel Grant Application

Application deadline: Sept. 30, 2020

To support the Center’s goal of funding research or creative works in the field of intersectional gender studies, and to support efforts aimed at advancing women and members of other historically marginalized and underrepresented groups into full and equal participation in the humanities and sciences, we seek proposals for our (virtual) travel grant applications. 

Note: for 2020-2021, the Center will not provide funding for travel due to USU’s restrictions on university-related travel. Instead, we will support participation in virtual conferences, trainings, and symposia.
