About the Award
This award recognizes an early career feminist scholar for innovative and outstanding community engagement. This engagement could include traditional academic engagement in research, teaching, and service, as well as policy impact, public awareness and/or activism. The award recognizes efforts to build communities and forge conversations about issues relevant to the FTGS that often go unacknowledged or unrewarded by academic institutions.
