Women's Philanthropic Leadership Circle Awards
Each year the Circle grants awards and scholarships to female graduate students and it honors female “rising star” pre-tenure faculty staff members. The deadline to apply for the 2014 awards is Monday, February 24th, 2014. The online application will be available in mid January 2014.
The WPLC annually makes several awards of up to $2,000 to graduate students each spring. Female graduate students enrolled full time (minimum of 6 credits) for the 2014-15 academic year in non-teaching licensure degree programs and who expect to complete their degrees by summer 2016 are eligible to apply. Students enrolled for dissertation-only credits are also eligible. Each recipient is expected to report back, in writing, to the WPLC about how the funds were used and how the award was helpful in furthering the recipient’s career and academic goals.
Previous recipients are not eligible to submit applications.
Rising Star Faculty Award
The WPLC will recognize a pre-tenure female faculty member in the College of Education and Human Development who has demonstrated leadership and creativity in an academic area as shown by research, teaching, and service.
The nomination process includes a letter of nomination from a tenured faculty member, a personal statement from the nominee, and a copy of the nominee’s curriculum vita. The deadline for nominations is Monday, February 24, 2014.
