Next round of applications due APRIL 12, 2024 at 5:00 PM!

Are you a women's studies student (major, minor, or certificate) interested in Creating Southern Intersectional Futures research or creative collaborations? Want to learn more about this grant and how to get involved? You're in the right place!

The Institute for Women's Studies at UGA has received a grant to support research, events, and activities that center "Building Southern Intersectional Futures." “Southern” here refers to the U.S. South as well as the Global South. “Futures” speaks to the enduring need to envision new political, social, and cultural formations that might redress current inequities. 

For this initiative, we are looking for projects that are critical and intersectional by design, bringing to light the multivocal character of Georgia and beyond. 

  • Whose voices are underrepresented at UGA? In Athens? In Georgia? 
  • How can a feminist intersectional lens (looking at race, class, gender, sexuality, ability and other identities) inform our research questions and methodologies?
  • How can we engage with our local communities to envision better futures?
  • How can we include and uplift underrepresented communities on campus and beyond?
