 Fellowship is the identifying project of Founder Region. Founder Region Fellowship's mission is to advance the status of women through financial support to women in the final phase of their doctoral degree. This project gives grants to selected women attending universities within the bounds of Founder Region. A byproduct of this support is affirmation of the importance of the recipients’ work and value as an individual.
