All currently enrolled Stanford Ph.D. candidates (males and females) in humanities disciplines are invited to apply for the Marilyn Yalom Research Fund Award.  Applicants are expected to be Clayman Institute Graduate Affiliates.  One award of up to $1000 will be granted in 2011.  The award is available for conference costs (travel, lodging, or fees) or other expenses directly relating to research. Actual costs will be reimbursed by the Clayman Institute. Former recipients of Clayman Institute fellowships, prizes, and awards are not eligible for an award until three years have passed. Current applicants submitting for a fellowship, prize, and/or award may only be offered funding in one category; applications in more than one category are allowed.

Any research supported by the Marilyn Yalom Research Fund of Stanford University's Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research shall acknowledge that fact in its published version.
