African Studies Graduate Student Summer Fieldwork Awards are intended to support UW-Madison graduate students working on a master’s thesis or Ph.D. dissertation pertaining to Africa. Students may propose to library or field research (preliminary or otherwise) related to their thesis or dissertation during summer 2017.
Applicants must be UW-Madison graduate students enrolled in Spring Semester 2017 and making progress toward a research-based master’s or doctoral degree focused substantially on Africa in any department or program. Students graduating in the Spring or Summer 2017 term are not eligible to apply.
Awards will total $3,000 each. The African Studies Program will work with awardees to purchase flights through the Concur system (per University of Wisconsin policy), and the balance of the award will be made available to awardees as an e-reimbursement.
Applications for the 2017 awards are now closed.
