There is exciting news from The Chair in Transgender Studies! They are establishing a set of brand new scholarships and fellowships to be awarded in 2017. Undergraduate and graduate students, and visiting community and university-based scholars and professionals, both trans and cis (non-trans) will be able to benefit from these awards.
Scholarships & Fellowships will be for:
· 3rd or 4th year undergraduates doing a trans studies project in any field.
· Trans and non-binary Master’s and Doctoral students working in any field.
· Cis Master’s and Doctoral students working on trans studies.
· Community- and university-based scholars and professionals working to benefit trans people.
· Those in financial need will be prioritized!
They need your help to get these awards out to as many people as possible. Please consider how you can help to expand access to these scholarships. Your donation now will have an impact!
And, for any donation received by TGlife members before September 30, 2016, -- it could be as small as $1 -- TGLIFE.com will add an additional 25%. (click the TGlife Members donate button below).
Please dig deep to help make these scholarships and fellowships have the maximum reach possible. Your contribution will help young trans and non-binary people to build successful lives. If you donate now, your donation of $250 will be doubled and will support an undergraduate student scholarship; a donation now of $500 will be doubled and will support a Master’s student or two undergraduate students. Your support will improve the lives of trans and gender nonconforming people. Your investment will make a brighter future.
Your donation now will make a difference!
All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by Tawani Foundation.
ABOUT THE TRANSGENDER ARCHIVES
The Transgender Archives at the University of Victoria is committed to the preservation of the history of pioneering activists, community leaders, and researchers who have contributed to the betterment of transgender and gender nonconforming people.
Since 2007, we have been actively acquiring documents, rare publications, and memorabilia of persons and organizations associated with activism by and for transgender and gender nonconforming people.
We began with the generous donation of the Rikki Swin Institute collection. The Transgender Archives have been enhanced by other significant donations including the personal papers of Reed Erickson, the entire University of Ulster Trans-Gender Archive collection, and the records of Zenith Foundation of Vancouver Canada, among many others.
Our records of research related to trans and gender nonconforming people go back over 100 years, while our records of activism by trans and gender nonconforming people span over 50 years and come from 18 countries across five continents. At over 320 linear feet / 98 linear meters, our collections comprise the largest trans archives in the world.
