TThe Institute offers 4-6 internal, one-semester dissertation fellowships for UW-Madison graduate students in the humanities. Applications are by departmental nomination only. Funds donated for this purpose, mostly by former members of the Institute, support these fellowships; frequency of awards depends upon availability of funds. Dissertation fellows are expected to attend the weekly Institute seminars and to present their work at an Institute seminar. Informal and formal Institute exchanges, along with workshop and symposia provide dissertation fellows with extended opportunities for engagement with faculty fellows across the humanities. Office space, photocopying, and some support services are available.
In 2012-2013, we anticipate holding competitions for the Dana-Allen and William Coleman. Departmental nominations for all Institute dissertation fellowships are due Friday, March 1, 2013.
