Fellowships are funded by gifts from private individuals, corporations, and
foundations. Your acceptance of this fellowship allows the Graduate School to
send an academic progress report and general biographical information to the
donors or sponsors of the fellowship. In some cases, recipients of fellowships
will be contacted by the Graduate School or University Advancement with
instructions to write a letter of gratitude to the donors. Fellowships do not
require a work obligation from the student. Specific donor and university
stipulations are conveyed in your award letter.
Please read the following general information about fellowships.
If you have questions, contact Mr. Thomas Marek by telephone at (414) 288-5325 or by via e-mail.
Direct deposit is not available for fellowship stipends. A paper check will be sent to you in care of your department (see "Payment Schedule" section below).
If you receive a monthly stipend for a teaching or research assistantship in addition to your fellowship, your assistantship and fellowship stipends will not be combined on one check. You will receive separate stipend checks for your assistantship (issued by the Payroll Department on the last working day of each month), and your fellowship ("see "Payment Schedule" section directly below).
The Accounts Payable Department issues stipend checks for fellowships on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Your fellowship check will be issued on the last Tuesday or Thursday of the month and will be sent to your department by campus mail for receipt the next day, either Wednesday or Friday. If you cannot pick up your check in person, you must contact your department to make arrangements for mailing.
If your fellowship includes a tuition scholarship, it will be applied directly to your Bursar account after you register for the related term. The scholarship will pay only for graduate-level courses that count toward your degree unless stated otherwise. It will not pay for audited or undergraduate courses.
