The Women in German Memorial Fund
The dissertation prize is funded from the Women in German Memorial Fund, established in 1993 to honor the memory of Sydna "Bunny" Weiss. As WiG lost other dear friends-Sigrid Brauner, Ann Clark Fehn, Konstanze Baumer, Marilyn Sibley Fries-the fund was rededicated to the memory of all treasured WiG members now deceased. The fund is now The Memorial Fund for Research Awards, to be used to fund the WiG dissertation prize as well as a new award for the best article by a WiG member.

Zantop Travel Award for Graduate Students
Inspired by the work of Susanne Zantop, Women in German established an award in her honor to help nurture and sustain research and publication in feminist cultural studies. The award provides partial support ($1500 maximum) for research travel by WiG graduate students. (To read more about the Zantop Travel Endowment Fundraising Campaign, please refer to the information on the left-hand sidebar.)

Donate to provide free graduate student memberships that will be awarded to active participants after the conference.
