Awards can be up to an individual maximum of $1,500 for travel to field site, specialized training not available through UW, or unusual expenses essential to the student’s proposed dissertation project.
The Scholarship Committee will give priority to proposals for pilot and pre-dissertation fieldwork that will enhance subsequent applications for external scholarships and grants (NSF Dissertation Improvement Grants, Fulbright, SSRC, etc.).
