Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowship

The Graduate School Office of Fellowships and Awards is now accepting applications from students for the Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowship. Mrs. Liebmann set up a trust fund to provide funding for graduate students of “outstanding character and ability who hold promise for achievement and distinction in their chosen fields of study.” This is the first year that we have participated in this national fellowship competition; we are able to send three nominees to the foundation for consideration. The Office of Fellowships and Awards will collect all applications and a faculty panel will review and choose the nominees.

AWARD: The fellowship provides an $18,000 stipend plus tuition and may be renewed for a total of three years of funding.

FIELDS: Eligible fields are: any recognized field of study in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences (including law, medicine, engineering, architecture, or other formal professional training).

Must be in an advanced degree program at the UW
Must be U.S. citizen
Must have outstanding undergraduate record
Must show financial need
Must have received baccalaureate degree
Not advocate communism . . . (yes this is for real.)

APPLICATIONS: Paper applications are available from the Office of Fellowships and Awards, G-1 Communications Building
