Applicants must be enrolled doctoral candidates who have completed coursework, qualifying exams, and submitted their dissertation prospectus (e.g., ABD status). Students studying or located in all geographical regions are welcome. However, funds from the Pettit Fellowship may not be able to cover the total cost of travel for many students coming from international locations. We encourage students from non-US locations to apply for supplementary travel funding from their home institutions. Students who are working on projects within the thematic and within the scope of lesbian studies are encouraged apply. The committee interprets Lesbian Studies in this context as being able to encompass the study of a broad range of genders, gender identities, and sexualities within multiple disciplines.
