Clara Campoamor, known politician and activist for women’s rights in the 20th century thirties, and Rosalind Franklin, head figure in the discovery of the DNA structure and unfairly left out by the scientific community for decades, name the prizes to the top bachelor and master degree projects with gender perspective of the UB, which this year reach their second edition. Promoted by the Equality Unit and funded by the Vice-Rector’s Office of Equal Opportunities and Social Action, the aim of these awards is to promote the integration of gender perspective in research and teaching and to make visible the students’ research on questions related to gender. Participants can be students who enrolled in official bachelor and master’s degrees and who presented their projects at the UB during the academic year 2019/2020, as long as this has a minimum mark of 8. The dateline to submit the applications is September 30, for the bachelor’s degree final projects and October 15 for master’s degree final projects.

The projects can be individual or in group and have to be gender-themed or have to include gender’s perspective, as an approach to the reality from a critical perspective considering sexual differences and sexualities, studies on the effects of gender inequality on the production and dissemination of knowledge, a basic research on theories and methodologies of feminist theories and gender studies, or the application of theoretical and methodological bases with gender perspective to the research on social and other problems.

The award to the top master’s degree final project accounts for 900 euros, and the one to the top bachelor’s degree final project accounts for 800 euros. Regarding the bachelor’s degree final projects, there will also be three second prizes of 200 euros, each for every different knowledge branch from the winner. These branches of knowledge are: Experimental Sciences and Engineering; Health Sciences, Arts and Humanities, and Social and Legal Sciences.

The decision will be taken by an interdisciplinary jury formed by the director of the Equality Unit, Pilar Rivas, and experts on gender from all the faculties that teach disciplines the projects talk about, and will be presided over by the vice-rector for Equal Opportunities and Social Action, Maite Vilalta. To select the awardees, the jury will consider criteria such as the relevance of the topic and originality in its development, theoretic frame, coherence and methodological rigour, and the results, conclusions and the advances it brings to its field. Projects using sexist or androcentric language will be excluded.
