Everyday struggles that women encounter in obtaining doctoral degrees

Everyday struggles that women encounter in obtaining doctoral degrees

With funding from the Columbia University Collaborative to Advance Equity Through Research we are pleased to announce a two-day workshop that will prepare female masters students to apply for competitive doctoral programs and pursue original research.

The workshop will be held from March 16 to 17 2020. The goal of the event is to contribute to the diversification of the academy by creating a forum for women to develop strategies for combating systemic issues that might deter them from applying to doctoral programs.

We invite applications from female masters students in any field. At the workshop, female junior and senior scholars will share their experiences, brainstorm solutions to the everyday struggles that women encounter in obtaining doctoral degrees in Nigeria and abroad.

The application requires a 250-500 words statement of interest that explains your motivations and goals. Please submit your application here by February 7th.
