Evermay Visionaries is a 12-month professional development and grant program designed to give early career stage women an opportunity to be the primary investigator/author on a research project and to provide grantees with resume boosting tools to break through to the next stage in their career.
This program is provided by S&R Evermay, a non-profit foundation with the mission to promote transformative societal impact for this generation and the next. S&R Evermay encourages individuals in the greater Washington, DC area, and other strategic locations, to collaboratively develop innovative solutions to real-world problems.
The Stimson Center has been selected as S&R Evermay’s partner on this pilot program. Full-time employees of Stimson who meet the eligibility criteria listed below are encouraged to apply. S&R Evermay’s independent selection committee will review applications and select three grantees. Scheduled interviews may take place during the review process to determine finalists upon request from the selection committee. 

Required application materials: CV and/or resume, personal statement (not to exceed 500 words) that includes a description of how this fellowship opportunity will allow you to expand your role and research opportunities over the course of the next year, reference letter from a supervisor, up to four-page proposal to including all figures, references, project title, goals, timeline, budget (including % of indirect costs from Stimson and any cost-sharing), potential impact, outcomes, collaborators if applicable and expected outcomes during the 12-month period of the program. 

Program benefits: 

Stimson will receive $50,000 in funding per grantee to support research funding. In addition to funding, grantees will receive training in skill areas such as OP-ED writing, media training, securing grant funding etc. Grantees will have access to office and meeting space at Evermay, S&R’s headquarters, to conduct and disseminate this research. S&R Evermay aims to provide space and time for our grantees to build community with peers and senior researchers across organizations. Grantees will be encouraged to provide feedback towards the development of this nascent program.

General notes on the program elements:

  • All Social hours will be held after work hours  (from 5:30PM) at Evermay and will be based on grantees schedules. They will be set about once per month based on availability of invitees, grantees, and the venue. 
  • Trainings will be during work hours, but scheduled in collaboration with grantees. There will be no more than one or two training sessions per month and there will be a quiet period without any training sessions. 
  • Check-ins are one-to-ones between individual grantees and program staff to gain a sense of how the program is going. These will most likely be virtual via Zoom, but can also be conducted in person at the grantees request. 
  • Events - Exact dates for the Welcome and Closing events will be determined in collaboration with grantees schedules; however, we are planning for the Welcome event in October 2023, and the Closing event in July 2024.
