Marjorie Lozoff Prize
Students are nominated for the prize by affiliated Clayman Institute faculty and may be nominated for dissertation research or independent projects with the intent of publishing an article or presenting on the topic at a research conference. Stanford graduate students are nominated from a variety of disciplines.
This prize of $2000 honors the memory of Marjorie Morse Lozoff. In an extraordinarily productive life as wife, mother, sociologist, social worker, teacher, researcher, and community leader, Marjorie Lozoff served as a model for the idea that most deeply absorbed her: furthering women's development for the benefit of women, men, children, and society. In 2002 the Lozoff family—Dr. Milton Lozoff, and his daughters and their families—established an annual prize in memory of Marjorie.
The Marjorie Lozoff Award for Research on Women and Gender is given to a graduate student conducting research on issues related to Lozoff’s interests, including but not limited to, reproductive rights for women, equal rights for women, and protections for women, aging, and the family, with preference for research in the social sciences and the professions such as medicine and law
