Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Scholarships

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program has two yearly scholarships:

The Judy Mann DiStefano Memorial Scholarship

Dr. Judy Mann DiStefano's commitment to feminism, activism, and pacifism were reflected in her role as a history professor at Northern Virginia Community College. Her roots were in the Northwest, and her mother, Jane Goodale Mann, was a graduate of Oregon State University. This scholarship provides an annual $2,000 stipend to a full-time undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Oregon State University.

Jeanne Dost, Margaret Lumpkin and Jo Anne Trow Founders Scholarship

Jeanne Dost, Margaret Lumpkin, and Jo Anne Trow helped establish OSU's Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (formerly Women Studies) Program in 1972, with Dr. Dost as its first director.  This scholarship honors their contributions, and provides a $750 stipend to a full-time undergraduate or graduate student in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Oregon State University.

Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies undergraduate majors, MA, and PhD students may apply for these scholarships.

Selection criteria include academic excellence, commitment to feminist ideals, and financial need. A complete application includes the summary application form, essay, financial aid information, and two letters of recommendation. Applications will be ready for distribution in the Spring.
