The Feminist Practice Award for Undergraduates recognizes Women’s Studies undergraduate majors or minors in LGBTQ Studies, Gender, Race and Nation, or Gender and Health whose work in community service or activism best exemplifies application of feminist thought to practice. The winner will have a strong record of leadership that demonstrates a clear connection to ideas from Women’s Studies courses. We particularly welcome applications from students whose work has focused on empowering those who are marginalized.

Nominations may be forwarded by eligible students or other members of the University community. Self-nominations are especially welcome. Nominees are asked to submit a narrative of 300–500 words describing their relevant service or activism and its connections to their academic work at the University of Michigan, including specifically their coursework in Women’s Studies. The award carries a certificate and $500 and is conferred on a student or group of students each May.  Nominations are due on March 23, 2015.
