AWGSA PhD Award

PhD Award

The AWGSA PhD Award was established to promote and advance feminist scholarship in Australia by recognising emerging research in the fields of Women’s and Gender Studies and related disciplines.  The award is made to the most outstanding doctoral thesis completed at an Australian university that clearly and extensively engages with feminist paradigms.  The inaugural award was made in 2010, and the prize is awarded every 2 years.

The PhD Award will occur at the AWGSA  Conference in Adelaide in July 2021. Given the change in dates, theses completed in 2018, 2019, and up to 30 June 2020 will be eligible. Criteria and Application Form can be found here: AWGSA PhD Award Nomination Form 2021.

Nominations for the 2020 Award for doctorates are now open. The application closing date is 1 November 2020.
