Campbell Fellowship in Social Sciences for Women from Developing Countries

Vera Campbell Foundation
Research Fellowship

Deadline: 1 November (annual)
Study in:  USA

Brief description:

One six-month fellowship is available for a female social scientist from a developing nation, either pre- or post-doctoral, whose work addresses women’s economic and social empowerment in that nation. The goal of the program is twofold: to advance the scholarly careers of women social scientists from the developing world, and to support research that identifies causes of gender inequity in the developing world and that proposes practical solutions for promoting women’s economic and social empowerment.

The fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Vera R. Campbell Foundation.

School for Advanced Research on the Human Experience in New Mexico, USA

Social sciences: anthropology, economics, education, geography, history, law, linguistics, political science, psychology, social work, or sociology, or in an interdisciplinary field that incorporates two or more of these disciplines.

One fellowship is available.

Target group:

Women scholars from developing countries.
