Beth B. Hess Memorial Scholarship

Sociologists for Women in Society

The Beth B. Hess Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to an advanced sociology Ph.D. student who began her or his study in a community college or technical school. A student advanced to candidacy (ABD status) in an accredited Ph.D. program in sociology in the U.S. is eligible to apply if she or he studied at a U.S. two-year college either part-time or full-time for the equivalent of at least one full academic year that was not part of a high-school dual-enrollment or enrichment program.

Applicants must demonstrate commitment to teaching, especially at a community college or other institution serving less-privileged students. Applicants must have done research and/or activism in social inequality, social justice, or social problems, with a focus on gender and/or gerontology being especially positive. Applicants will also be assessed on service to the academic and/or local community, including mentoring, as well as high quality research and writing in the proposal and letter of application.
