Opportunity: Scott Kloeck-Jenson Fellowship Competition Accepting Applications for Summer 2018

The Scott Kloeck-Jenson (SKJ) Fellowship is now accepting applications from graduate students for Summer 2018 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, working towards a PhD, 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: over the past 3 years (2015-2017) amounts have run $3,700-$4,500.

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

The deadline to submit applications is February 19, 2018.
