The Women’s and Gender Studies Graduate Certificate Program AwardsThe Women’s and Gender Studies Graduate Certificate Program awards the Vivien Hartog Best Graduate Student Teacher Prize, which is given annually in memory of Vivien Hartog, who was a Ph.D. student in Sociology at Stony Brook and a Women’s Studies graduate certificate student. The $3000 award is given to the graduate certificate student who has not only received consistently high evaluations for their teaching, but has also demonstrated a strong commitment to social justice in and beyond the academy.
The second award, also funded by the Hartog family, consists of two annual travel grants of up to $500 each for graduate certificate students to attend the Feminist Theory Workshop at Duke University. The workshop is designed to introduce both faculty and students to the latest work in feminist scholarship and theory and includes keynote talks and seminars. Both Hartog awards are open to registered WaGS certificate students.
