This fellowship is awarded to incoming students in targeted minority populations who are US citizens and permanent residents. To be considered for AOF funding, prospective students must be new to the Graduate School and be admissible to a graduate program at UW-Madison. Awards are based on demonstration of superior academic achievement, letters of recommendation, GRE scores, and an effective statement of purpose. To be considered for nomination, contact the History admissions coordinator, Jane Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org). AOFs provide a stipend, tuition and fees, and eligibility for health insurance. In addition, AOF fellows receive a $600 welcome check. The AOF is awarded in the first year at the University and another year as a dissertator. The department guarantees 3 additional years of support as well.
