Student Opportunities


Students spend a semester as interns with a local agency whose work has bearing on personal experiences. Each student works with a faculty advisor to develop the connections between real-world experience and theoretical study of women and gender.

Independent study

Working with a GSWS affiliated faculty sponsor, students can choose topics of study that deepen their knowledge of their own interests and career goals.

Daniel-McCarter Award

Students, Save Your LGBTQA Work!

If you have done coursework on LGBTQA issues, consider submitting your work for the Daniel-McCarter Award, offered each year for outstanding undergraduate essays, art, film, creative writing, and other projects at UVM.

The deadline will be in March each year, and the winner will be announced at the LGBTQA Rainbow Graduation in May. This award is generously co-sponsored by the UVM Bookstore.
