Joan D. Hedrick Student Research Stipend

The Joan D. Hedrick Student Research Stipend, established in honor of Professor Joan D. Hedrick, the founding director of Trinity’s Women’s Studies Program, supports student research on any aspect of women’s history that involves primary sources.

Research projects to be conducted or submitted during a student’s senior year under the supervision of a Trinity faculty member are eligible for a stipend up to $1000.  Funds may be used to conduct research at libraries or archives or to offset other research-related expenses.

To receive consideration, students must submit to the Director of the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Program by either December 1 or May 1 a description of their research project (no fewer than 250 words); the name of the faculty member supervising the project; a preliminary bibliography; and a proposed budget.

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality faculty will evaluate the applications and determine the amount of the award.  Applicants will be notified of the faculty’s decision no later than two weeks following the deadline.
