Dolores Zohrab Liebmann supported students and charitable organizations in her lifetime and created a fund to continue support after her death. The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund supports graduate students with “outstanding character and ability who hold promise for achievement and distinction in their chosen fields of study.” The University of Washington is one of the institutions selected to submit three nominees for this national fellowship.
In 2017-18, the fellowship will provide an $18,000 stipend, plus tuition. This annual award may be renewed for a total of three years.
All interested applicants must:
- Be a UW doctoral or professional graduate student currently enrolled in a field of study that may include any recognized field of study in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences (including law, medicine, engineering, architecture, or other formal professional training). The selection committee has a strong preference for supporting scholarly endeavors (not practice degrees).
- Have received a baccalaureate degree and have an outstanding undergraduate record.
- Show financial need (i.e., must have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the UW Office of Student Financial Aid — if you do not already have one on file for this year you should file one immediately.
- Be a U.S. citizen.
- Conduct their studies and research in the United States.
Applications must be submitted on paper to the Graduate School’s Office of Fellowships and Awards (G-1 Communications Building) by the UW deadline. Applications will be reviewed, and three nominees will be chosen for submission to the foundation.
