Opportunity for WGST Undergraduates

Are you a first-year, sophomore, or junior looking for some feminist fun this summer? WGST wants to send ONE minor or emphasis student to one of the hands-on, feminist summer programs below. Topic and dates vary for each program, but any of these would be a unique opportunity to meet like-minded students from around the country and have an incredible summer experience! WGST will cover up to $1000 in costs for one student applicant. Note: the programs have very different costs (see below), so this may factor into your decision about which to apply to.

Check out the websites for each to see which one is the best fit for your interests and schedule and then fill out the application (see Nino’s email from 2/12) and submit it to by Friday, February 16th at 5 PM. Email me ASAP if you have questions!

Because each program has its own application deadline, we need to review ALL applications to select the winner ASAP.
