2011-12 International Research or Study Graduate Fellowships


For 2011-12 the Graduate School will award Chester Fritz and Boeing International one-quarter fellowships to support international study or research abroad by UW graduate students. These grants are available to fund research and/or study periods of three months, corresponding to regular UW quarter dates. Fellowships include a monthly stipend for the three months, equivalent to the rate of a Predoc Teaching Associate II, currently $1761 per month, and include paid health insurance and UW state tuition. No extra money is included for airfare.

In allocating these awards, PRIORITY will be given to applications with the following:
1. documentation of the relationship between the proposed study/research and the applicant's academic program, and
2. evidence of appropriate language competence, and
3. documentation of the relevance of the university or locale to the planned research, and evidence of affiliation if required to carry out the proposed project, and
4. an indication that the international experience is new, e.g, students returning to their home country or frequent visitors to the proposed site will have lower priority.

Students who have already received a Graduate School Pembroke Award, a Graduate School Fritz, or Western Europe Travel Grant are ineligible to receive an International Research/Study Award.

Graduate students enrolled in fee-based programs through Educational Outreach are not eligible.
