Brace Fellowships

The Brace Center for Gender Studies supports outstanding scholarship and research by students and faculty.  Every year, a handful of students work through the spring and summer to better understand a variety of topics as see through the lens of gender.  Through the mentorship of a faculty member, students research an area of interest, write an extensive paper on the subject, and eventually present their findings to the entire community.

The Brace Center is proud to present the Brace Fellows
