Graduate Student International Field Research Awards

The Division of International Studies is pleased to announce the 2009-10 competition for Graduate Student International Field Research Awards. These awards enable Ph.D. students to conduct exploratory summer field research abroad in order to develop their dissertation topics and be more competitive for extramural fellowships. Awards are intended to cover airfare and living expenses abroad, and are expected to average about $3,000 per student.

Proposals should be submitted to the International Institute member program (www.intl-institute.wisc.edu/MemberPrograms) to which the student is applying. Complete applications are due by 4pm on October 16, 2009.

To be eligible students must be enrolled in a University of Wisconsin–-Madison doctoral program and have completed their M.A. or M.S. Dissertation research will be considered, but priority will be given to pre-dissertation exploratory research. Please note that the award is not intended to cover language study. The competition is open to U.S. citizens and international students.
