Each grant of $500 can be used toward conference attendance or caregiving expenses such as daycare costs during the conference, flight expenses of the dependent accompanying the awardee to the conference, or temporary caregiver fees related to conference attendance.||For these awards, early career is defined as either currently a student or less than ten years since earning their last degree. Time spent not working actively in a scientific field (for example, time away from scientific work due to family responsibilities) does not count toward the ten year limit. In this case, include an explanation in the CV and/or statement.||September 7, 2018||Applicants who have already applied for a student travel award to the 2018 Fall Meeting can also apply for a caregiver support award.

Applicants must be rising juniors, seniors, or be recent college graduates (graduated no more than 10 months from the application deadline). There is no requirement regarding the applicant’s major or focus of study, as long as the summer position focuses on STEM. Positions can be of any type (internship, fellowship, research assistantship, etc.) and take place in a variety of environments (i.e. research lab or project, nonprofit organization, hospital/clinic, etc.), as long as the position is unpaid or underpaid and directly related to the sciences. The summer position may be located anywhere in the United States or territories. We anticipate accepting four applicants each year as scholarship recipients, or “scholars.” This number may be adjusted according to the volume of applications received.
The intention of the scholarship is to cover the cost of living and some travel expenses for those who otherwise would not be able to afford such an opportunity. Applicants must therefore demonstrate financial need in their application.
The financial award consists of $1,600 per month (4 weeks) for the length of the individual’s summer position, and therefore will be calculated for each accepted scholar. Each scholar is assigned at least one mentor to lend guidance on entering and navigating her profession. Additionally, the Foundation will informally connect the scholar with others that we feel would be useful contacts outside of the assigned mentor(s), as another opportunity for networking within her chosen profession or interest.
The B.A. Rudolph Foundation is committed to the principle of diversity in all areas. In that spirit, we are particularly dedicated to reaching applicants from a broad spectrum of qualified people. Applicants with diverse backgrounds, experiences, ability and perspectives are encouraged to apply.

Located on the grounds of the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, their mission is “to educate and prepare professionals in public service who understand, engage and transform complex social, cultural, economic and political systems to ensure equity, challenge oppression and effect positive social change.” The curriculum for this two-year degree includes both classroom and hands-on learning, with students participating in public service projects throughout Arkansas, the United States, and the world.|
The B.A. Rudolph Scholarship at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service is a $12,000 scholarship awarded annually to a woman who is a rising-second year student and best embodies the mission and values of the Foundation. The purpose of the scholarship is to alleviate the cost of an advanced degree by paying the full tuition for one year, as well as living expenses and funds for professional development.
The B.A. Rudolph Foundation partners with the Clinton School to honor the organization’s namesake B.A. Rudolph (University of Arkansas, Class of 1978), her deep roots in her native Arkansas, her long time professional commitment to former President Clinton, and the mission of the school as a center dedicated to public service and future leaders. Rebecca Davis and Maggie Moore announced the creation of the scholarship on February 21, 2015, during their participation in the Clinton School Speaker Series. President Clinton, addressing the entire student body, announced the first recipient of the B.A. Rudolph Scholarship on March 27, 2015.

How does the program benefit women and/or the community? |
Requests can be submitted year-round and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. There is no funding minimum or maximum. We do not fund sponsorship or grant proposals for costs related to tuition or internships, as we currently support those efforts through our Undergraduate Public Service, Graduate Public Service, STEM, and Clinton School of Public Service scholarship opportunities. We also do not accept study abroad or travel abroad requests. An application to the foundation to become a BA women has to be made in order to apply for this scholarship. Additionally, the scholarship helps fund BA women attendees to the the 8-week long internship in D.C..

ECWS fellows will be supported to continue their research at an international level while based at their home institutes, to build up research groups that will attract international visitors, and to initiate collaborations and partnerships with industry and the private sector.|
The ECWS fellowship is for two years. It provides funding for a wide range of expenses, including equipment, consumables, research visits, exchanges and programmes, teaching and assistance, information resources, product development and linking with industry, outreach, communications and networking, and other expenses. The fellowship does not provide for the fellow’s salary which must be guaranteed by the fellow’s institute. However, the ECWS fellowship can be used to cover the costs of assistance to the fellow for teaching duties not directly related to the fellow’s research in order for the fellow to focus on carrying her own research forward to an international standard.
In addition to the research grant, fellows will also attend two expenses-paid training workshops on leadership and entrepreneurial skills.

This program was established, and is still intended, for mid-career professionals educationally disadvantaged by past laws and resource allocations in South Africa. Under the current presidency of Drew Gilpin Faust, the HSAFP seeks to expand its reach to institutions and organizations across South Africa in a continued effort to draw the broadest possible range of candidates for the program. In addition, the University – reflecting the current South African constitution – has expanded its applicant pool to extend to all South Africans, regardless of ethnicity or race.|
Fellows are selected because they have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields, and are expected to benefit from advanced training. Fellowships are for a year of study in one of Harvard’s Professional Schools or Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, with tuition waivers provided by the School once fellows are admitted. General administrative funds for program management, stipends, and airfare for the fellow are provided by the Office of the President, and administered by the Center for African Studies, under the directorship of Professor John Mugane. Since the inception of the Harvard South Africa Fellowship Program, the Center for African Studies has awarded over 200 fellowships.
|The HSAFP was conceived largely to provide educational enrichment for men and women in mid-career, that is, individuals in various occupations who have shown considerable skill in their chosen fields and leadership and are expected to benefit from advanced training. Thus candidates who have just completed, or who have not yet completed, a first degree are not selected unless this degree has been pursued concurrently with, or subsequent to, experience in the workplace. Fellows usually range in age from 30 to 45 years.||Fellows must be South African citizens.||April every year||The fellowship provides for payment of all tuition for the full period of enrollment at Harvard. The fellowship also funds the round-trip airfare between the fellow’s home and Boston, as well as a monthly stipend. Fellows typically elect to stay in University graduate dormitories. Please note that housing costs in the Boston/Cambridge area are extremely high, and the stipend only covers bare necessities. The monthly stipend must also be used to pay for other expenses such as medical and dental insurance, medicines, taxes, food, winter clothing, books and supplies. Fellows are held personally responsible for the payment of all bills other than tuition fees and airfare. Please be advised that Harvard will require fellows to purchase American medical insurance. This insurance does not cover the range of services covered in South Africa. Separate insurance must be purchased for dental coverage. Charges for non-covered expenses and prescription drugs are very high.|
