Funding: Scott Kloeck-Jenson Fellowship

The Scott Kloeck-Jenson (SKJ) Fellowship is now accepting applications from graduate students for Summer 2020 awards.

Two different types of awards are given annually:

  • International Internship Fellowships to support graduate students interested in undertaking practitioner internships abroad
  • Pre-Dissertation Travel Fellowships to support overseas travel to potential field research sites for doctoral students planning to conduct preliminary dissertation field research

The program is open to graduate students of any nationality enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, planning to spend 8-10 weeks in the field, and whose work includes a social justice component (see webpage for additional information). Award amounts vary year-to-year and depending on time spent abroad and destination. The average award has been $4,500 over the last two years.

Students enrolled in terminal master’s degree programs are not eligible for either SKJ award.

The deadline to submit completed applications is Monday, February 3, 2020 by 12pm.

Complete details on the application requirements are available here.
