The Excellence in Gender Research Fund
is an endeavor stemming from an idea of the Global Women Leadership students' group of the Bologna Class of 2018 and benefitting from the support of Bologna alumni, mostly members of the Bologna Class of 1975. Its goal is to offer SAIS Europe students the opportunity to underline the importance of research on the role of gender in international relations and the ways it shapes policies.
This initiative originates from the recognition that gender studies are becoming ever important in the current international arena and that gender is a factor touching upon and influencing the various facets of international relations. Hence, being able to investigate the role gender plays in the structure of a society, both past and present, is a crucial tool for today's expert in the field of international relations.
The Fund supports two equally important initiatives:
- Student Reseach. SAIS Europe students who are interested in bringing a gender perspective to the field and in exploring how gender relations affect and are affected by international relations can apply for research funding in amounts up to Euro 500 per project.
- The Excellence in Gender Research Prize.
This award honors the best research paper or article produced by SAIS Europe students which engages a gender perspective to examine international affairs. The Prize is worth Euro 200 and will be awarded at the end of the academic year.
