“A fellowship of this caliber recognizes the contributions L&S students undertake to not only be excellent scholars but also honors the deep commitment to the service of others and advancing humanity.”
Eric Wilcots, Dean of the College of Letters & Science
The Wolff Fellowship
The Wolff Fellows program grants $45,000 to a graduating senior in the College of Letters & Science to support a year of travel, service or study abroad experience, post-graduation.
Candidates for this tremendous opportunity of a lifetime must be Letters & Science seniors intending to graduate in Spring 2024. A committee appointed by Dean Eric Wilcots reviews completed submissions and selects finalists for interviews.
This award considers not only excellent academic performance and related endeavors, but also weighs the student’s commitments and actions to those outside oneself and to the greater community. During the undergraduate career, this can look like volunteerism, community or public service, leadership, and other endeavors.
Eligible Letters & Science seniors must have a minimum grade point average of a 3.75.
The deadline to apply through the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub known as WiSH is Monday, January 29, 2024.
