Caner Hazar and Jordan Rees, graduate students from Department of Sociology, were each awarded a 2018 Wood/Raith Living Trust summer fellowship!
The Wood/Raith Living Trust is named for Audrey Wood (UCONN class of ‘47) and Edeltraut Raith. Both Wood and Raith earned their Masters in Library Science from the University of Southern California and spent their careers as librarians with the San Francisco Public Library system. They generously gifted the University of Connecticut funds for the study of gender identity under the Wood/Raith Living Trust.
This summer Wood/Raith Living Trust started the initiative with graduate fellowships to support work focused on gender identity. We received 38 submissions across 14 programs/departments. The top 12 candidates across 9 departments/programs were offered awards of $4,000 each. The award winners will appear on the website https://woodraithgender.uconn.edu/.
