Fellowship Opportunities

OverviewBack to Top

Funding support for graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison largely takes the form of fellowships and traineeships. They are typically administered through a student’s respective Academic Program; therefore, inquiries about funding support should initially be addressed to the department.
