Apply to be a Ouisconsin Scholar

The deadline for the 2017 Ouisconsin — Field Research Scholarship is May 28, 2017

The earliest maps of the land that was to become our state were generated by French explorers, who transcribed the Algonquian lexicon according to French grapho-phonemic relations. Many of these early maps carry the term Ouisconsin. Cognizant that we live in a world of challenges that increasingly require international solutions, WAA-France wishes to enhance the global competence of UW students. The WAA-France Chapter has created a needs-based grant to support field research in France for an eligible UW student in hopes of enhancing his or her global competence in the tradition of those historic relations between Wisconsin and France.

The selected applicant will demonstrate clear links between current and future research/academic challenges and how this funding will make a difference to the student’s academic and/or professional projects within a global context.

The $3,000 USD grant may be used to cover travel and travel-related expenses (e.g. visa), living costs, or research fees and supplies. For a full list of application requirements and detailed scholarship guidelines, see the application form.
