Application Fee Grants

The Graduate School offers a limited number of application fee grants to make sure that the application fee is not a barrier for students from key recruiting initiatives. Fee grants are currently available to U.S. citizens and permanent resident applicants who can document that they:

  1. participated in selected pipeline programs designed to prepare students for graduate studies,
  2. grew up in a low-income family, or
  3. were impacted by the recent hurricanes in Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands (to be reviewed and granted on a case-by-case basis).

If any of the above criteria apply, please email feegrants@grad.wisc.edu. If you are an applicant who has been impacted by other natural disasters or life events please email graduateschooldean@grad.wisc.edu to inquire about possible application deadline extensions and/or possible fee grant support (to be reviewed and considered on a case-by-case basis).

For more information regarding application fee grants, please consult the UW-Madison Graduate School website.
