A $5,000, one-year fellowship to support doctoral research and dissertation writing that contributes to understanding of women’s philanthropy or gender differences in philanthropic behavior is being offered by the Women’s Philanthropy Institute (WPI) at the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.
The application deadline for the 2014 WPI Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship is April 30.
The fellowship contributes new research to expand the knowledge base about women’s philanthropy. In recognition of WPI’s commitment to grow the field of scholars who conduct research in issues of gender and philanthropy, the fellowship award has doubled to $5,000.
Previous fellowship recipients include Deborah Skolnick Einhorn (Brandeis University) for her dissertation “The Power of the Purse: Jewish Women’s Philanthropy and Social Change;” Laura Gee (University of California at San Diego) for her studies to better understand how donors, especially women, choose between volunteering, fundraising, and monetary donations; and Brent Pieper (Indiana University) for his dissertation on women’s philanthropy programs at higher education institutions and their impact on giving.
