The deadline for applications for the Zantop Travel Award for Graduate Students has been extended. The new deadline is now March 15, 2016.

Inspired by the work of Susanne Zantop, Women in German established an award in her honor to help nurture and sustain research and publication in feminist cultural studies.  The Zantop Travel Award, which supports dissertation research by graduate students in German Studies, has sustained work on more than two dozen dissertations since it was established in 2002.  Each year WiG will grant up to two awards, each in the amount of $1500.

Graduate students who have not yet completed the Ph.D. Applicants must be WiG members with a dissertation project approved by a faculty advisor for research on a topic in feminist German cultural studies that requires travel to consult specific archives, libraries, cultural centers, or authors.
