Applications for the Ann Ferguson scholarship are currently being accepted at the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts. There is one common application that includes this fund, set up by retired faculty member Ann Ferguson for WGSS undergraduate or graduate students as well as about 100 other funds. To apply, in addition to the application, you must arrange to have your school send your most recent official academic transcript to the Community Foundation. Also, the submission of a Student Aid Report (SAR) is required. Please take advantage of this opportunity!

Our spring symposium, "The Politics of Migration: Gender, Sexuality and Citizenship" was great - for pictures, check out our Facebook page.

Joyce Berkman, Professor of History and WGSS Adjunct Professor has retired! As a parting gift, Joyce established an endowed fund, the Joyce Avrech Berkman, Professor Emerita (as of 2013) Endowed Fund in Women's History and Women's Studies Award. The fund will award $500 every spring to a WGSS Certificate student that completes requirements that spring. Click HERE to donate to this fund.

We have a presence on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and now YouTube (all the cute little buttons are above). Our hope is to continue adding video, tweeting and posting as things happen.

It's now easier than ever to make a donation to Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies!

Humanities and Fine Arts students, check out the HFA scholarship page!

The flashing pictures are group photos from our end-of-year celebrations through the years. Enjoy!
