The Women’s and Gender Studies department is pleased to announce that we will be giving tuition scholarships again this year. These scholarships are offered through the Women's and Gender Studies Endowment.
As a Women’s and Gender Studies major or minor, if you are a returning student for fall 2014, you may apply for these awards. You may apply for both a tuition award and the book scholarship.
The deadline for all scholarship applications is May 12. Awards are announced in June.
1. The Women's and Gender Studies Major Merit Scholarship
The Women’s and Gender Studies Department is pleased to announce that we will be giving tuition scholarships again this year. There will be one $750 major award and one $500 award for a minor, both for the AY 2014/2015. The WGS scholarships will be given out based on need and/or merit. WGS aims to award these scholarships in as holistic a manner as possible. In the final analysis, we are interested in supporting students who we believe will benefit - personally and intellectually - from the WGS educational experience.

2. Janet Freedman Women's Studies Book Scholarship
In addition, the WGS Department offers the Dr. Janet Freedman Women’s Studies Book Scholarship award for $250 to offset the cost of books for one semester. Dr. Freedman, the previous director of Women’s Studies, firmly believed in the need for a WGS program at UMass Dartmouth. Her work established a foundation for the program, and in her name we are continuing to ensure the commitment of the WGS Department to students pursuing their major or minor.
