The Community of Scholars (COS) is a four-month summer fellowship program. It is intended to support U-M graduate students who are engaged in research, scholarship, or other creative activities that focus on women and/or gender.

IRWG is committed to fostering cross-disciplinary exchange.  To that end, all awardees participate in a weekly seminar during May and June.   Research may be conducted outside of Ann Arbor during July and August.  Awardees will also present their work at a public symposium during the Fall semester following their award.
