How Your Gift Helps Graduate Students
Graduate students are a critical part of a world-class university.
They teach undergraduates and are central to creating an intellectual and physical infrastructure that immerses all our students in projects that address the most significant problems of our times.
Many gifts from alumni and friends make a difference for graduate students in L&S, thereby helping support all students at UW-Madison.
- Support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and gifts from alumni and friends helped fund the Sawyer Seminar in the Center for Humanities. This series of extended seminars brings together prominent and emerging scholars from the humanities and social sciences and is open to the academic community and the public.
- Annually, the college recognizes outstanding teaching assistants by honoring them with fellowships and scholarships. These annual awards recognize excellence and help graduate students afford a world-class education.
