Gender Scholar Award

About

The Women's Caucus, housed in the College of Arts and Sciences promotes an academic culture of inclusiveness at Western Michigan University in research, teaching, service and administrative.  To support and encourage efforts in this area, the Women’s Caucus offers this award annually for a faculty member who demonstrates excellence in gender-related research and scholarly activities.   

Award winners receive a plaque/award, are honored at the college faculty and staff award ceremony held during the spring semester, and will be asked to present their work publicly during the spring semester at a WMU community event.  In addition, award winners receive $1,000, which is deposited into their departmental WRAP account, which can be spent in accordance with university policies for WRAP expenditures.

Nominations are due January 15 of every academic year while funds are available.
