The Mary Isabel Sibley Fellowship

"This year, the award may be used for the study of Greek culture (including language, literature, history, archaeology). It carries a stipend of $20,000 and is intended for women in the early stages of their careers and was designed to reward them with the experience of researching and living abroad."


The Walter J. Jensen Fellowship: This "is awarded annually to be used for the study of French language, literature, and culture for at least six continuous months of study in France. It carries a stipend of $17,000."

This Committee was formed to advance discussion and critical thinking about the issues facing people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, those with disabilities, and all persons and groups who have historically been oppressed or marginalized within American society. 

Time Commitment: 1-2 hours per month (except summer months generally) and virtual committee meetings every 2-3 months for event planning.
