December 8, 2021: The Empirical Study of Gender Research Network (EGEN) is pleased to announce the 2022 competition for the EGEN Prize for the Empirical Study of Gender and Politics.
Receipt of the prize is an acknowledgement that a graduate student or early career scholar is embarking on cutting edge scholarship that considers gender and politics from an empirical lens.

Prize winners will be connected with a member of EGEN's executive board, who will serve a mentors for the year. Winners will be invited to participate in one of our upcoming workshops (AY 2022-2023).
