APPLY NOW: Alison Piepmeier Scholarship and Skirt. Magazine Endowed Scholarship

Great news! The WGS program scholarship applications are open! Read below to find out more about the two scholarships that will be awarded for 2019-20 and how you can apply.


The Alison Piepmeier Scholarship was established in honor of the late Alison Piepmeier, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Director of the Women’s and Gender Studies program at the College of Charleston. Alison was a scholar and feminist, known for her activism and her many publications including her book Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism. The scholarship’s goal is to reward a Women’s and Gender Studies student with a record of feminist scholarship and activism. The awardee must be a full-time student at the College of Charleston and a Women’s and Gender Studies major or minor, must have an academic GPA of at least 3.0, and must have a demonstrated record of feminist activism and leadership. This scholarship is $2,500 for one student.

The application deadline for the 2018-2019 scholarship is Friday, March 8, 2019 at 11:59pm.


The Skirt. Magazine Endowed Scholarship was established in 2012 by Skirt. Magazine’s founder and original editor, Nikki Hardin. Skirt. Magazine is a monthly print publication and website for women.

Hardin was a single mom with three children when she started college, at the age of 29. She earned a B.A. in Literature from American University in 1976 and attended graduate school at the University of Virginia on a Governor’s Fellowship. She started her first full-time job a year later when she was hired as a secretary at Reston Publishing Company, a subsidiary of Prentice-Hall. In 1985 she moved to Charleston, SC and spent the next few years working part-time jobs. She founded Skirt. Magazine in 1994 with not much more than $400 and the desire to have something interesting to read.

The Skirt. scholarship is $2,000 per year and the application deadline is Friday, March 8, 2019 at 11:59pm.
