Fellowship News

The Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies is proud to sponsor three important research grant and paper competitions, the Rockefeller Residency Fellowships, Martin Duberman Fellowship and the CLAGS student paper awards. The Rockefeller Residency Fellowship competition is in its third year. The fellowships focus on the issue of citizenship and sexuality within a broad spectrum and levels of social settings. This year, the competition seeks proposals from activists, independent scholars, and academics who are looking at citizenship and sexualities as enacted and represented on national levels. An independent and distinguished panel of jurors will award two fellowships in the amount of $30,000 with up to $2000 for moving expenses. The Fellows will be in residence at the Center for one year and will be involved in its activities. The Martin Duberman Fellowship is named after the CLAGS founder and first executive director and is awarded to any scholarly research in GLBT studies. The fellowship is open to applicants from any country, and the winner will receive $7500. The deadline for the above fellowships is February 15. CLAGS also offers a student travel grant as well as two student paper awards. The CLAGS student paper awards are open to all graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in the CUNY system. Papers for the undergraduate award should be between 15 and 50 pages, well though-out, and fully realized. Papers for the graduate award should be between 15 and 50 pages and of publishable quality. The deadline for these awards is june 1. For application procedures and submission guidelines, please contact the CLAGS office at (212)642-2924.
