The Society of Woman Geographers (SWG) Evelyn L. Pruitt National Fellowship for Dissertation Research is made possible by a generous bequest from Ms. Evelyn L. Pruitt. Ms. Pruitt was a research geographer with the United States Navy whose work from the 1940s into the 1970s greatly advanced the study of coastal environments, the use of remote sensing in geography, and field research in international settings.

SWG's Pruitt Fellowship Program offers fellowships up to $12,000 to women doctoral candidates in the United States and Canada. These fellowships support dissertation research in geography and geographical aspects of related fields.
