The Rita and Arnold Goodman Fellowship supports graduate students at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign who are preparing to work in the field of women, gender, and international development on such issues as literacy, reproductive rights, political participation, economic security, child welfare, and environmental protection.

In selecting recipients, preference will be given to students whose work promises to make a significant practical contribution to the improvement of women's lives and gender equity in the developing world. For more background information, visit the Goodman Fellowship History link.  

The Fellowship is for the academic year and will include a stipend up to $18,000 (starting 2024-2025) and tuition and fee waiver.
