IRWG supports original, faculty-led programs that reach across the university, each one linking several U-M departments, interdisciplinary programs, or professional schools in a focused examination of a particular area or topic related to women and gender. IRWG Faculty Programs are usually funded for a two-year period, but some are long-standing.
IRWG welcomes program proposals that explore differences and commonalities among and between women and men in the multicultural United States and internationally. Typical programs involve a series of public events, workshops, and other creative activities that might inform a future research project or result in a publication or performance. Funding for as much as $10,000 is available for approved programs.
The next deadline for proposals is January 15, 2015.

Faculty and graduate students propose new study groups each year, and some study groups continue from one year to the next. These groups provide a forum for interdisciplinary exchange about a topic, and group participants often plan events or collaborative research projects.
If you are interested in starting a new study group, please contact Lezlie Stephens at email@example.com or (734) 764-9537.
IRWG’s programming reveals how central the intersectional analysis of gender and race is to feminist endeavors on campus. Lane Hall and the institute are evidence of how strongly--and successfully-- the University of Michigan embraces this mission.
