PRINCETON, NJ –The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation has named Deneil Hill a recipient of the Woodrow Wilson Dissertation Fellowship in Women’s Studies.
Hill graduated from Eastern Oregon University in 2010 with a degree in history and a minor in gender studies. She joins nine other fellows selected from around the country and will receive $5,000 for expenses related to completing her dissertation.
Currently, Hill is a doctoral candidate in history at Binghamton University (SUNY) in New York. Her dissertation on “Shifting Feminist Visions at the UN: Self-Determination, Sexuality and Human Rights, 1975-1995” will be publicized with leading scholarly publishers at the conclusion of the dissertation year.
The fellowship supports the final year of dissertation writing for Ph.D. candidates like Hill in the humanities and social sciences whose work addresses these topics in interdisciplinary and original ways.
“It is an honor to have been selected for such a significant accolade,” Hill said. “The award is a wonderful recognition of the importance of my work for the field of women’s studies and women’s history, and it will certainly help me to make my project even better.”
Other 2015 fellows represent the University of California, Los Angeles, Indiana University, Johns Hopkins University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, University of Missouri, New York University and Rice University.
The fellowship was created in 1974 and is still the only national program to promote doctoral work on women’s and gendered issues. It has supported more than 500 Ph.D.’s in various fields and includes a Pulitzer Prize winner, two MacArthur Fellows, eight Guggenheim Fellows, a number of Fulbright Fellows and many others who have achieved significant distinctions in their fields.
