Mary Gardner Award for Graduate Student Research
Graduate students who conduct research on women in journalism and mass communication are invited to apply for the Mary Gardner Award. This award is designed to fund research that has the potential to make an excellent contribution to the scholarship on women and journalism and mass communication. The award honors Mary Gardner, professor emeritus at Michigan State University and the first woman elected president of AEJMC. Applicants send four copies of a three-to-five page description of the project and its potential contribution and the application’s qualifications for undertaking the project. A three-person panel judges the applications.
