Judith Reppy Women's Studies Independent Research Grant
There is no deadline to apply for this research grant.
The Judith Reppy Women's Studies Independent Research Grant is made possible by the generosity of Judith Voris Reppy '58, who graduated magna cum laude from the College and went on to earn a master's degree from Yale University and a doctorate in economics from Cornell University. She has directed the Peace Studies Program at Cornell and has studied the economics of defense, security and peace for many years. The Judith Reppy Women's Studies Independent Research Grant will provide funds for Mount Holyoke College students pursuing independent study projects related to the study of women.
