The Kinsey Institute Library & Special Collections offer a range of fellowship and scholarship opportunities each year to support early career scholars and encourage the use of the Kinsey Institute research collections.
After the hiatus imposed by COVID-19, we are thrilled to announce the 2022-2023 awardees for the Scholars for Sexology Fellowship, the Gina Ogden Curatorial Scholarship, and the Kraft-Kinsey Award for MFA Students.
Scholars of Sexology Fellowship
The Scholars of Sexology Fellowship is awarded annually to an exceptional candidate or candidates in the field of sexology and is intended to support the use of library and archival materials at the Kinsey Institute. This fellowship was established by sex researcher Dr. John Money.
The 2022 Fellows are Mary Gently (Rutgers University), Olivia Adams (Indiana University), and Mia Hua (University of Pennsylvania), with Honorable Mention to Tom Driver (Indiana University).

Gina Ogden Curatorial Scholarship for Integrative Approaches to Sex Research and Therapy
The Gina Ogden Curatorial Scholarship is awarded annually to professionals and students, including undergraduates, who would benefit from using the library and archival materials at the Kinsey Institute.
The intent of The Scholarship is to stimulate new ways of building on Dr. Ogden’s integrative Four-Dimensional Wheel (4-D) approach to sex research and therapy, and to carry forward Dr. Ogden’s award-winning work.
Congratulations to our Inaugural Scholar: Evan Theis (Indiana University).

Kraft-Kinsey Award for MFA Students
The Kraft-Kinsey Award supports a writing project by an Indiana University MFA student that makes substantial use of the Kinsey Institute’s materials and archives. The award is a unique opportunity for emerging writers to give voice to issues of human sexuality, as exemplified by the Kinsey Institute and its collections, while simultaneously discovering new connections between human sexuality and art. The award is made possible through partnership between the Kinsey Institute and the Creative Writing Program at Indiana University and funded by the Martha C. Kraft endowment.
Congratulations to IU MFA students Katelin Carlton and Tyler Raso.
