The Fellowship will be realized through a collaboration between the University of Oregon Knight Library, the Robert D. Clark Honors College (CHC), and the Center for the Study of Women in Society. The purpose of the Fellowship is to encourage continued research in the area of feminist science fiction within collections; $3,000 will be awarded in 2013. The Knight Library currently houses the papers of Ursula K. Le Guin, Joanna Russ, Kate Wilhelm, Suzette Haden Elgin, Sally Miller Gearhart, Kate Elliot, Molly Gloss, Laurie Marks, Jessica Salmonson, and Damon Knight, and is working to acquire the papers of James Tiptree, Jr. and others.
Applications must be submitted by September 1, 2013.
