Robin I. Thevenet Memorial Fellowship for Graduate Certificate Students
The Thevenet Fellowship is in memory of Robin I. Thevenet, a graduate student in the joint program in English and Education at the University of Michigan. Her dissertation concerned Victorian women educators who had written autobiographies describing how they had decided to become teachers and then went on to found schools or colleges. Awarded annually to a maximum of two students in either the Women’s and Gender Studies Certificate Program or the Certificate in LGBTQ Studies, the Thevenet is designed to further research on women by graduate students at the University of Michigan by supporting research-related expenses.
Applicants must be students in good standing and currently enrolled in either the Women’s and Gender Studies Certificate Program or the LGBTQ Studies Certificate Program at the University of Michigan.
Students must submit:
- a two-page statement describing your research project (This should include the research issue/topic you are pursuing, a rationale for your project, the methodology for your project, implications of your research, and a budgetary statement on how you plan to use the funding.)
- a complete and current curriculum vitae
- the name of your dissertation advisor or Master’s program advisor
Please work closely with your advisor on your statement before submitting it to Women’s and Gender Studies. The applications will be evaluated by an inter-disciplinary certificate advisory committee.
Application materials are usually due in early March each year.
A monetary award of $1000 will be presented to the winners in April.
