Hazel Dick Leonard Research Seminar

The Hazel Dick Leonard Research Seminar is an endowed interdisciplinary program that supports student research on gender. Each HDL Fellow receives $2,000 of support for research materials, travel, and other associated costs.

The Fellowships run through the fiscal year, and include a stipend for a Simmons faculty advisor and the chance to invite an outside scholar to speak at Simmons (in addition to the $2,000 for the student's own research).

After a summer and fall of independent work, HDL Fellows participate in an interdisciplinary 4-credit seminar in the Spring Term. Undergraduate and graduate students can enroll in the HDL seminar as an independent study or thesis.

Students apply for HDL in April. Selection is competitive.
