Additional information:

Through a generous $100,000 matching grant from the Ford Foundation, the National Council for Research on Women has established the Mariam K. Chamberlain Dissertation Award to honor and extend the vision of its first President, Dr. Mariam K. Chamberlain, who passed away at the age of 94 in April 2013. The Award will enable the Council to continue Mariam's work supporting high-level scholarship. Annually, a first-generation college graduate will be awarded $8,500 to continue working on a dissertation under the close supervision of a senior dissertation advisor, who will receive $1,500 for continued mentorship, another area of keen interest for Mariam. The Award is open to any first-generation graduate student pursuing a PhD (must be ABD by August 2014) at an accredited university in the U.S.
