Funding Opportunities

Cornell graduate students whose research interests include feminist, gender, and sexuality studies are encouraged to apply for the FGSS First-Year Writing Seminar Award or the FGSS Teaching Assistantship.

First-Year Writing Seminar Award

The FGSS First-Year Writing Seminar Award will be offered to one or two graduate students at Cornell for demonstrated excellence in teaching. Applicants must have completed their third year. The award will provide tuition and a stipend, equivalent to the current teaching assistantship stipend, for the one semester of teaching. 

Applications are due by February 15, 2024. 

Teaching Assistantships

FGSS has a limited number of teaching assistantships each year and is particularly interested in graduate students at Cornell who would benefit from working with our joint faculty and serving as a TA in our core curriculum. 

Applications are due by February 15, 2024. 

Graduate Assistantship

The FGSS and LGBT Studies graduate assistant provides event, community-building, and communications support for the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (FGSS) and LGBT Studies programs.
