Jacque Kocer, Archaeology doctoral student, has been awarded an AAUW American Fellowship for 2021/22.  The award will help support Jacque while she completes her dissertation on Communities of Practice and Communities of Identity among Gallina potters in the US Southwest.

The American Fellowship Program began in 1888, a time when women were discouraged from pursuing an education. It is AAUW’s largest fellowship program and the oldest non-institutional source of graduate funding for women in the United States.

AAUW American Fellowships support women scholars who are pursuing full-time study to complete dissertations, conducting postdoctoral research full time, or preparing research for publication for eight consecutive weeks. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Candidates are evaluated on the basis of scholarly excellence; quality and originality of project design; and active commitment to helping women and girls through service in their communities, professions, or fields of research.
