Kirkland Research Associates Program


Kirkland Project Research Associates Program:

The Kirkland Project seeks to build community by raising questions that emerge at the intersections of gender, race, class, sexuality and ability. The Kirkland Project Research Associates Program is designed to support students who wish to make the connections between their own disciplinary or interdisciplinary work and the social justice mission of the Kirkland Project. Therefore, we especially solicit proposals that address the relationships between gender and other significant factors of analysis.

We welcome students working in each division (arts, sciences, humanities, and social sciences), as well as from the interdisciplinary programs. Past projects have included art installations and activist endeavors, as well as research on a wide range of topics. We encourage students to apply in groups, and welcome work that would involve on-campus or community-based studies.

An Associateship lasts for one semester; students will have access to up to $500 for travel, research or artistic expenses. All Associates and mentors will meet regularly for a colloquium, to share and discuss their work. The semester's work culminates in a public presentation.

Contact Kirkland Project email if you have any questions and/or are interested in applying for an Associateship.
