Priority will be given to research not significantly supported elsewhere. The award is made possible through the generosity of the Shana Alexander Foundation, in honor of Ms. Alexander’s pioneering work in journalism and her commitment to feminist ideals. The award range is $1,000 to $5,000.

Preference will be given to those students, especially juniors, whose research is intended to contribute to their senior essays. The proposed project must be a full-time commitment and be the primary activity for the duration of the fellowship.
