Scholarships & Fellowships

Fellowship and scholarship opportunities outside of the UW are available with the American Meteorological Society and the National Science Foundation.

There are UW fellowships available and all applicants are automatically considered for any available fellowships. There is no special application process. Our department nominates students for these fellowships.

Limited funding for students to travel to conferences, field projects, collaboration visits, or short courses is available through our Graduate Student Travel Award program.

The list below includes information on external fellowships and UW teaching assistantships compiled by the department and that have previously been held by students in AOS. Please see http://flux.aos.wisc.edu/~adesai/documents/fellowshiptalk-desai-aos.pdf for tips on how to successfully apply for fellowship funding.
