Research Publication Grant in Engineering, Medicine, and Science

Funding Agency:
American Association of University Women

Having a strong publication record is a key factor in obtaining promotions and tenure in engineering, medicine, and science. Yet persistent gender stereotypes and bias in these fields can make it difficult for women to find the time, funding, and institutional support needed to publish their research. AAUW’s Research Publication Grant in Engineering, Medicine, and Science helps women overcome these barriers by providing them with funding for research projects that will culminate in scholarly publications.

Grants are open to women scholars conducting basic research in engineering, medicine, or the physical or biological sciences and who have a doctorate degree in one of those fields. The grantee must publish their research in a scholarly publication and be listed as a primary author.

Deadline: Dec. 1, 2019

Eligibility Requirements

  • Grants are not open to previous recipients of any AAUW national fellowship or grant (not including branch or local awards or Community Action Grants).

AAUW staff or volunteers with decision-making authority who wish to apply for an award must recuse themselves from the decision-making process.
  • Grants are open to women scholars conducting basic research in engineering, medicine, or physical or biological sciences. AAUW follows the National Science Foundation’s definition of basic research: “activity aimed at acquiring new knowledge or understanding without specific immediate commercial application or use.”
  • The grantee must plan to publish this research in a scholarly scientific publication within six months of the end of the grant year and be listed as the sole author, senior author, first author, or an author of equivalent significance.
  • Applicants must hold a doctorate degree in engineering, medicine, or the physical or biological sciences.
  • Tenured professors are not eligible.
  • The grants are for tenure track, part-time, and temporary faculty, as well as new and established researchers at universities.
  • Applicants may not apply for another AAUW national fellowship or grant in the same year.
