In order to more purposefully support and enhance the people and land of the Driftless Region, in 2014 (for the 2015 academic year) UW-Platteville is pleased to announce The Driftless Fellowship, a competitive fellowship providing 50 percent release to existing UW-Platteville faculty and staff to do applied work or research that positively impacts the quality of life of Driftless Area residents.

In 2015, we expect to award up to four fellowships with at least one fellow hailing from each of the three UW-Platteville colleges: Engineering, Math and Science (EMS); Business, Industry, Life Science and Agriculture (BILSA); and Liberal Arts and Education (LAE). Fellows may come from all disciplines and backgrounds, but all projects must address a regional need and have a direct and sustainable impact upon the economy, culture, or ecology of the Driftless Region; in short, projects must contribute to the long-term quality of life for those living in the region. Collectively, our fellows will help assure that the Driftless Region remains an innovative, sustainable, and vibrant place to live.
