Vivien Hartog Awards

1)  The Vivien Hartog Graduate Student Teaching Award is named in honor of Vivien Hartog, a WST graduate certificate student at Stony Brook who died before she could complete her Ph.D. in Sociology. It is awarded to the graduate student who most exemplifies Vivien’s lifelong commitments to social justice, activism, teaching, and learning. The award is for $3,000.  Should the faculty deem it warranted, the award may be split between two recipients. The winner/s will be presented with the award at Commencement.

Eligibility: 

The award is open to all full-time PhD students in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (graduate certificate students who have a record of teaching for the WGSS undergraduate program may also apply—see below).

You must have completed the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Teaching Practicum seminar (WST 698) with a passing grade of A- or higher and have at least two years of teaching experience in the WGSS undergraduate program, including at least one class in which you were the lead instructor. Winter and Summer session and online classes may also count as classes taught for the program. You can apply for the award more than once as long as you meet the eligibility criteria and have not previously received the award.

2)  The Vivien Hartog Travel Award, is an award that consists of up to three one-time annual travel grants of up to $750 to current PhD and MA students for travel expenses to academic conferences or for dissertation or thesis research.  

Eligibility:  

The award is open to all currently enrolled PhD and MA students in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. You must be either a) presenting or attending* a conference within the academic year in which you apply or b) travelling to a research site, archive, or professional development activity within the academic year in which you apply. *Note: If you are only attending, and not presenting, you need to explain why it is important for you to attend the conference (for publishing, networking reasons etc).

You can apply for the award more than once as long as you meet the eligibility criteria. However, priority will be given to those students who have not previously received a Hartog travel award and whose application is otherwise excellent.
