Proposals are being sought for Hyde Graduate Student Research Grants.
These grants, each up to $500, are awarded to doctoral psychology
students to support feminist research. The grants are made possible
through the generosity of Janet Shibley Hyde, Ph.D., who donates the
royalties from her book, Half the Human Experience, to this fund. Past
recipients of Hyde Graduate Student Research Grants are not eligible
to apply. Because the purpose of this award is to facilitate research
that otherwise might not be possible, projects that are beyond the
data analysis stage are not eligible.

message to both of the Hyde Award Co-chairs at the following addresses
by September 15th (for the fall deadline) or March 15th (for the
