Llangollen Research & Creativity Award


The Llangollen Awards are given annually to TCU undergraduates pursuing research or creative activity related to women, gender, or sexualities. Awards are intended to support students as they conduct research, gather data, acquire materials, present their findings, or engage in other activities resulting in the production of research and creative activity. Awards support proposed research to be completed in Summer 2018 and/or during the 2018-19 academic year.


The Llangollen Award is named in tribute to Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby, who resided in Llangollen, Wales in the early 19th C. They are remembered today for their flouting of the limiting gender conventions of their society and the independence and autonomy with which they lived out their lives together. The Provost’s Office is the generous sponsor of this award.


The winners will receive up to $500 to support their research and will present their findings at the WGST Research Symposium in April 2019. Students must present a projected budget of costs with their application. Funds may be used between June 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019.
