Graduate School

Fellowships and Grants

At UWM, Graduate School Fellowships are awarded each year to select new and continuing graduate students. A limited number of Advanced Opportunity Program Fellowships are also awarded annually to qualified students who are members of groups underrepresented in graduate study. More information on these fellowships as well as graduate travel awards and graduate fellowships offered from other sources outside of UWM is available on the Graduate School’s fellowship page.

The Comparative Literature program also offers a select number of small stipends through the Chancellor’s Graduate Student Awards program to exceptional students as these funds are available. Applicants who apply by January 15 will automatically be considered for these awards.

For students already enrolled at UWM, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies has a number of field research and travel awards available to students doing field research in those areas of the world as well as summer Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowships for studying a Latin America or Caribbean language other than Spanish.

Other Sources of Funding

The Comparative Literature Program is, regrettably, unable to offer students teaching assistantships at this time. Students within the Comparative Literature concentration with the requisite language skills may apply for teaching assistantships with the other language programs within MALLT; application materials and deadlines are available at the MALLT Teaching Assistantships page.
