Scholarship Overview

The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage doctoral research in sociology, anthropology, psychology and related fields on women’s experience of breast cancer and other reproductive cancers and the prevention of these cancers. Another goal of the scholarship is to encourage scholars to make this type of research accessible to the public through speaking and publishing for lay audiences. The candidate must identify as a woman with a feminist orientation who is sensitive to studying women’s cancers and their impact on diverse groups of women, including those of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, language, religion, geographical areas, and other cultural perspectives. The candidate must have an approved prospectus for doctoral research. The topic should be useful academically and should also have pragmatic and practical applications such as informing and empowering women, demystifying the disease, and/or having implications for the breast cancer epidemic more broadly. The scholarship is intended for researchers who plan to present their findings and applications to lay audiences as well as social scientists. See website for further details.
