The American Association of University Women invites applications for Research Publication Grants in Engineering, Medicine, and Science.
Having a strong publication record is key to receiving promotions and tenure in engineering, medicine, and science. Yet persistent gender stereotypes and bias in these fields can make it difficult for women to find the time and institutional support needed to publish their research. These grants help women overcome these barriers by funding research projects that will culminate in scholarly publications.
The grants are open to women scholars conducting basic research in engineering, medicine, or the physical or biological sciences and who have a doctorate degree in one of those fields. The grantee must publish their research in a scholarly publication and be listed as a primary author.
- The grant amount is between $10,000 (Rs. 7,49,350.50) to $35,000 (Rs. 26,22,376.75 approx.).
- The payment of the final 10% of the funds will be contingent upon publication of research results within six months of the end of the grant year.
- The grants are open to scholars who identify as women and who are conducting basic research in engineering, medicine, or physical or biological sciences.
- The grantee must plan to publish this research in a scholarly scientific publication within six months of the end of the grant year and be listed as the sole author, senior author, first author, or an author of equivalent significance.
- Applicants must hold a doctorate degree in engineering, medicine, or the physical or biological sciences.
- Tenured professors are not eligible. The grants are for tenure track, part-time and temporary faculty, as well as new and established researchers at universities.
- Applicants may not apply for another AAUW national fellowship or grant in the same year.
