These are grants of $5,000 to be used early in the recipient's career at the UW-Madison.

Details on the award & application process are available on IRIS's website at:

Grad School:  <link to email>

The Graduate School has launched a new, searchable database of external funding opportunities for graduate students to help you find funding opportunities from external federal agencies, professional organizations, and private foundations. The database contains dozens of fellowships, many of which UW-Madison graduate students have received in past years. You can search specific fellowships, filter results by disciplinary division or demographics, or browse the database to discover new opportunities. Explore the fellowships database here.


CCWT is sponsoring an additional webinar series, Supporting Higher Education and Career Success for Refugees in Wisconsin. This is an important and relevant topic, and we are looking forward to some fascinating discussions and engagement with knowledgeable scholars and practitioners, and to a panel discussion with college students with refugee background. 

Please consider participating in this series. The attached PDF has the links to register.
