Award Announcement: Wisconsin Without Borders Recognition Awards for Global Engaged Scholarship. Deadline: 11:59pm, Sunday April 6th

In alignment with its mission, Wisconsin Without Borders (WWB) is soliciting nominations of outstanding examples of globally engaged scholarship by members of the UW-Madison community. Please note, this award recognizes previous scholarship and is not meant to be a proposal for future work.

Awards will be offered in two categories – (1) faculty/academic staff (2) graduate students. Undergraduate students are not eligible for this award. Applicants in both categories may be nominated individually or as a group for a joint project. Faculty/academic staff and graduate students may apply on behalf of the same project, but students must demonstrate contributions independent of the faculty/staff member(s). The award amount will average $500 to $1000 per project.

Individuals may apply on behalf of themselves or as a nomination for someone else. All applications will be expected to include:

(1) a completed information form (available at http://morgridge.wisc.edu/programs/wif/WWBawards.html ) and (2) a brief application essay (please see PDF). Scholarship does not have to be international in location or subject matter. Applicants just need to demonstrate an understanding of how their work fits within a global context.

Completed applications will be due via e-mail by Sunday, April 6th at 11:59pm to mtaalbi@wisc.edu.
