Graduate Prize

One person with long hair and a black sweater hands an award to a person in a black dress with blond hair.

The Gender and Women’s Studies Graduate Prize is awarded annually to one outstanding GWS graduate concentrator in recognition of the student’s commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship in Gender and Women’s Studies. The winner will receive a certificate of recognition, a monetary award of $500, and notice among the University’s award winners.

To apply, we ask that you be an existing UIC GWS graduate student concentrator who has taken at least one of the core courses (GWS 501 or 502).
