SLA Graduate School Fellowship Competition for 2022-23

The SLA Program is pleased to announce a competition for UW-Madison Graduate School Fellowships for the 2022-23 academic year.

All current SLA majors (dissertators and non-dissertators) in good standing are invited to submit applications.

The Graduate School Fellowship covers

  1. a stipend totaling $11,454.50 per 4½-month semester (2021-22 rates),
  2. payment of all tuition and segregated fees during the fellowship period, and
  3. eligibility for health insurance during the fellowship period.

It is important to remember that these fellowships are awarded for the express purpose of allowing students to work on their studies full-time, so additional TA or PA appointments typically are not allowed. If your current assistantship might present an exceptional case, for example there is risk of losing it if you give it up for a fellowship, please speak with your adviser to plan the best path forward. Note that in all cases, hourly appointments of up to 10 hours/week MAY be held concurrently with a fellowship.

To apply for the Fellowship, submit your application materials to Dianna Murphy by 5:00 pm, Wednesday April 27 (extended deadline).  

The application should include the following:

  1. Fellowship application
  2. Curriculum vitae
  3. A short statement (maximum 250 words) from your advisor assessing your progress. The advisor should email the statement directly to Dianna.

Fellowship applications will be reviewed by the SLA Steering Committee at its meeting on May 4. Decisions will be made based on the academic merit of the application and the student’s progress to date in the program.

For questions about this competition or about the fellowships, please contact Dianna Murphy, Interim Program Coordinator, or Monika Chavez, Program Director.
