advancing the critical study of men and masculinities
the Loren Frankel Memorial scholarship fund
The Board of Directors of the American Men’s Studies Association established the Loren Frankel Student Scholarship Fund in 2005. The fund is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Loren Frankel, a young professor of psychology at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia who died tragically in an automobile accident in 2004. Dr. Frankel was known as an inspiring teacher, an accomplished scholar, and a respected colleague. He presented several papers on adolescent sexuality and male heterosexual identity at AMSA’s annual conferences. The Scholarship Fund supports students and early career professionals engaged in the critical study of men and masculinities like Dr. Frankel.

AMSA’s work to promote the critical study of men and masculinities and particularly the work of new scholars is furthered by the kind gifts of members and non-members alike.
