OPSVAW Support for Graduate Students

The next generation of advocates, justice professionals, health and mental health professionals, and academicians is found walking the paths of today's college campuses and sitting in the seats of today's university classrooms. The OPSVAW is committed to ensuring that interested students in a variety of disciplines receive financial support for educational and research opportunities related to violence against women.  Support is available for graduate students in the departments and programs formally affiliated with the OPSVAW; and for professional (law) students who work for the OPSVAW executive director.

Graduate student support comes in two forms:  First, graduate fellowships are available for outstanding graduate students whose research programs include some aspect of violence against women.  Additionally, graduate research assistantships (RA) are available for graduate and professional students who are employed to work on research projects led by Carol Jordan, Executive Director of the OPSVAW; or by select department or program faculty.  Funding support for RA positions may last one summer session, one semester, or one year.  To be eligible for a fellowship or research assistantship, students must be located in a department formally affiliated with the OPSVAW, including the Department of Psychology, the Department of Political Science, the Department of Gender & Women's Studies, and the African American and Africana Studies Program.  Calls for proposals are released early each spring semester.
