Feminist Theory and Gender Studies (FTGS) has created this convention award to aid applicants affiliated with or graduating from institutions that do not enjoy significant resource and geographical privilege (i.e. those from the Global South in particular) will be given first consideration. Among those, priority will be given to those in their final years of graduate work completion through to their first years of their post-doctoral career who demonstrate the highest level of need; a lack of institutional support; the significance of their participation in the Convention; and a record of ongoing engagement with the FTGS Section, ISA organization, and ISA conventions.
Two awards are available at the value of $800USD each. The amount of the award reflects the costs of four nights of accommodation at convention hotels, but may be used as the awardees see fit. Funds will be provided at the convention itself by a member of the FTGS Exec upon proof of registration. No receipts or expense forms will be required: the award is in the full sum, to be disposed of in the manner that best supports convention participation for the awardees.
Congratulations to Khushi Singh Rathore and Amanda Ferreira, recipients of the 2019 FTGS Convention Awards!
