University of Wisconsin-Platteville
University Fellows Program
For increasing diversity among faculty

This year the program will award approximately five fellowships. The University Fellows program provides one year of support (renewable for up to three years) for individuals who are ABD in their doctoral program in eligible fields.

University Fellowships will be awarded via a national search administered by the Assistant Chancellor for Diversity and Inclusion on behalf of the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. The fellowships will be given to individuals who, in the judgment of the departments, deans, and Assistant Chancellor, have demonstrated superior academic achievement, are committed to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level, show promise of future achievement as scholars and teachers, and are well prepared to use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.

Eligibility to apply for the University Fellows program is limited to Ph.D., D.Ed., or Sc.D. degree candidates studying in an eligible discipline at an accredited educational institution. Applicants should expect to finish the dissertation no later than Summer 2016.
