UWRA Fellowship in Aging:

The UWRA Graduate Student Fellowship is a one-quarter fellowship that supports graduate students of outstanding academic merit who have a demonstrated academic and personal interest in aging-related issues or concerns. The fellowship will provide a monthly stipend equivalent to the standard PDTA II level (currently $2,572/month), GAIP health insurance, and a waiver of state tuition for up to 18 credits (excluding U-PASS and international student fee) in the quarter when the student takes the fellowship. The choice of the quarter will be left to the discretion of the graduate student in consultation with his/her department.


At the time of application, students must be matriculated in a UW graduate degree tuition program (fee-based programs are not eligible) and not in their last year of study. The recipient of the award must be enrolled in full-time credits (at least 10) during the fellowship quarter. Students in fee-based programs are not eligible to apply.
