The Chancellor's Golda Meir Library Scholar Awards for 2014-’15
Submit application by Monday, March 31, 2014 (Instructions below).
The Chancellor's Office at UWM announces two graduate student awards of $5,000 for the 2014-’15 academic year. Applications are invited from current UWM doctoral students; applications from advanced doctoral students and dissertators will be given priority consideration. Finalists may be asked to provide a letter of recommendation from their major professor. Submissions will be judged by a subcommittee of the University Libraries Committee. Members of the subcommittee include faculty, academic staff, and a representative of the Graduate School. The award recipients will be notified before the end of the spring semester, 2014.
The Chancellor's Golda Meir Library Scholar program is designed to provide two advanced graduate students with the resources necessary to pursue a year's intensive research in their chosen academic fields. The primary criteria are as follows:
- A strong overall scholarly record, including but not limited to previous degrees, grade point average, professional presentations and publications, teaching and service.
- A clearly demonstrated need and intent to make substantial use of the resources of the Golda Meir Library.
The Golda Meir Library will supply the award recipients with specialized information assistance and a study carrel for the duration of the awards. Additionally, the recipients are encouraged to use some of the funds to travel to national and/or international conferences, and to other institutions that are helpful in fostering work done primarily through the Golda Meir Library.
Terms of the Awards
At the end of the award period, the Chancellor's Golda Meir Library Scholars will present the results of their research at one of the installments of the Library's The Scholar and the Library series.
Winning scholars will acknowledge the support of the Chancellor’s Golda Meir Library Scholars Award in future publications or presentations supported by the award by inserting an acknowledgement such as: “My thanks to the Golda Meir Library Scholars funding for supporting this project.”
Any subsequent publication completed before graduation will be deposited and made available through the UWM Digital Commons (dc.uwm.edu).
