Founder Region Fellowship

Fellowship is the major project of Soroptimist International’s Founder Region, to which our club belongs. The mission of the Fellowship is to provide financial support to women attending universities within Founder Region who are in the final phase of their doctoral degrees. These awards seek to support women who are working in fields that have great social importance to the world or are under-represented by women. The recipients’ work reflects and furthers Soroptimist ideals.


The awards are announced and formally presented at the annual Founder Region Spring Conference. For further information, please contact the Founder Region Fellowship website at


Fellowship has provided grants to women in the final phase of their doctoral degrees since 1948.  Complete history of fellowship 1948-2016.
