Visiting Scholars Awards

We don’t always have to travel to have our worldview challenged in tangible, significant ways. The UW-Madison Global Health Institute brings international and local experts to campus to share their knowledge and collaborate. Bringing these scholars to Madison challenges our group thinking and reminds us that our way of viewing the world may not be the best. Visiting scholars interact with students, scholars and the community in small group and one-on-one settings to also learn from experts here.

This fund will bring practitioners, researchers and scholars from Wisconsin and across the world to UW-Madison, adding diversity to our conversations and opening doors to new solutions.

Awards of up to $8,000 will be made, based on the length of visit and scope of activities.
