Grants for NTS Faculty for Projects in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies

The GSWS program supports and values the contributions of non-tenure-stream faculty (lecturers, visiting lecturers and instructors, part-time instructors) and is making available funds in AY16-17 to support NTS faculty in projects related to the study of gender or sexuality. Applicants must be affiliated faculty in GSWS, and strong preference will be given to faculty who teach cross-listed GSWS courses or are active in the program.
