Campbell Fellowship for Women Scholar-Practitioners from Developing Nations

The goal of the program is threefold: to advance the scholarly careers of women social scientists from the developing world; to support research that identifies causes of gender inequity in the developing world; and to support research that promotes women’s economic and social well-being.

SAR particularly welcomes and encourages applications from scholars in developing countries. All data collection should be completed prior to the start of the fellowship and applicants must demonstrate fluency in English.
