Sociologists for Women in Society has worked hard to build a coalition of women scholars who share concerns about the status of women both domestically and internationally. In keeping with that mission, SWS established a Women of Color Scholarship at its annual meeting in February 2007. The primary purposes of the scholarship are:
- To offer support to women and non-binary scholars of color who are from underrepresented groups and are studying concerns that women of color face domestically and/or internationally.
- To increase the network and participation of students and professionals of color in SWS and beyond.
Congratulations to UConn Sociology winners Chandra Waring (2011) and Chriss Sneed (2019)!
