New Endowment Fund at MIT to Support Women Doctoral Students in International Affairs

The Center for International Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has announced that its longtime colleague, the sociologist of science and national security Jeanne Guillemin, has established an endowed fund to provide financial support to women Ph.D. candidates studying international affairs at MIT. The first disbursements of this fund will be made in the spring for the next academic year.

“My hope is that the endowment will help women graduate students find new options for special projects that will energize their sense of inquiry and search for knowledge,” Dr. Guillemin stated.

Dr. Guillemin has been a research associate and senior advisor at the MIT Security Studies Program since 2006. Prior to joining MIT, she was a professor of sociology at Boston College, where she taught for 25 years.

A former MacArthur Foundation fellow, Dr. Guillemin’s most recent book is Hidden Atrocities: Japanese Germ Warfare and American Obstruction of Justice at the Tokyo Trial (Columbia University Press, 2017). The book was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
