The DWC is thrilled to announce the Larry J. Siegel Fellowship for the Study of Gender and Crime. The fellowship, given by the Darald and Julie Libby Foundation, is designed to recognize an exceptional graduate student in the field of gender and crime. The division will annually give one graduate student a one-time award in the amount of $5,000 to support a project involving original research, program or service development, implementation, and/or evaluation, or advocacy. In order to be eligible, the student must be the leader or principle investigator on the project.
To read more about the fellowship, including criteria for eligibility and how to apply, visit ascdwc.com/student-awards.
Just a reminder that DWC will host four major events at the meetings this year, as well as scores of sponsored sessions (in addition to lots of sessions of interest not sponsored by DWC). You can see all of these events in an amazing Google calendar put together by DWC Secretary/Treasurer Christina DeJong by going here: https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=71oa0jq4afim64iueu7vu6lkus%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=America/New_York (click on the “Agenda” tab for easiest viewing).

Election time is upon us and we’re still in need of nominations for two of the four positions that are open as of November. We have nominations for the graduate student and junior level Executive Counselors, but we are still in need of nominations for the senior level Executive Counselor and Chair. Having served in these various positions, I can tell you that they are very rewarding and have a manageable workload. You’re welcome to email me or current members of the Executive Board if you have questions about what the work entails. If you are interested in running for either of these two positions, please email Helen Eigenberg ASAP. Her email is Helen-Eigenberg@UTC.EDU. Thank you, and see you in November! ~Amy

The Chair will appoint all committees and committee chairs, with the approval of the Executive Board.
The Executive Counselors decide the budget for the Division, approve committees and committee chairs, and provide other leadership and counsel to the Chair and the Division, including issues related to the management and budget of Feminist Criminology. One Executive Counselor to be elected must be untenured or at an early stage in his/her career. One Executive Counselor must be tenured or at a later stage in his/her career.
