The Graduate School currently offers three fellowships for full-time study (see Fellowship Compliance).
- The Distinguished Graduate Student Fellowship (DGSF) for new and continuing UWM graduate students. The DGSF is a one-year, non-renewable fellowship.
- The Distinguished Dissertation Fellowship (DDF) for current UWM Ph.D. students who have either achieved dissertator status or will achieve dissertator status during the award year. The DDF is a one-year, non-renewable fellowship.
- The Advanced Opportunity (AOP) Fellowship for new and continuing qualified UWM graduate students who are members of groups underrepresented in graduate study or who are otherwise disadvantaged. Applicants must be American citizens or permanent residents of the United States. The AOP is renewable.
These fellowships provide recipients with a monthly stipend for the academic year, coverage of in-state tuition and remission of out-of-state tuition (for students who are not residents of the State of Wisconsin). Recipients will also be eligible to enroll in state-sponsored health insurance.
