The Rita Mae Kelly Endowment Fund was established by her friends and colleagues in affiliation with the Women's Caucus for Political Science, the Latina Caucus for Political Science, The Committee for the Status of Latino/Latina in the Profession, the Women and Politics Research Organized Section and the Race, Ethnicity and Politics Organized Section.
The Fund will support research on the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity, and political power. Income from the endowment will be used to support, but not be limited to, research grants for pre-dissertation graduate students, an award, or public presentation addressing the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity, and politics. The fellowship can be applied to resident or non-resident scholars of the Centennial Center.
If applying as a visiting scholar, a separate application file is not necessary. Interest in this assistance may be noted on the Centennial Center Visiting Scholar Application.
Non-resident scholars interested in funding should complete a Non-Resident Scholar Application Form.
