Ends on June 4, 2018

The CSW Policy Brief Prize was created to support and promote applied feminist scholarship by graduate students at UCLA. In 2011, we initiated a publications series rethinking public policy on gender, sexuality, and women’s issues and created the prize to encourage graduate students to submit their work. Each CSW Policy Brief presents research in support of a policy change that would substantially improve the health and well being of women and their families. Previous CSW Policy Briefs can be found on our Policy Briefs page.

We are delighted to invite submissions to CSW’s 6th Annual Student Policy Brief Competition. Accepted students will be selected to work with CSW researchers and staff on revising a policy brief for distribution to key community partners and public officials throughout California.
