Elaine Combs-Schilling Memorial Fellowship

Elaine Combs-Schilling Memorial Fellowship

The Elaine Combs-Schilling Memorial Fund was established in 2017 in memory of Elaine Combs-Schilling (1949-2016), Professor of Anthropology and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.  The fund established in her name gives IRWGS graduate students an opportunity to pursue summer archival research and travel in support of their doctoral work through the Elaine Combs-Schilling Memorial Fellowship.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 fellowship. Instructions for how to apply may be found here: 2020 Elaine Combs-Schilling Memorial Fellowship.
