2024 Call for Applications – Deadline February 2

If you are currently enrolled as an Information School student at UW-Madison, a $4000 Rare Book School Scholarship to attend a Summer 2024 course could be yours! The award will cover the cost of the program including tuition and travel. Previous recipients have described the experience as professionally transformative. To be eligible for consideration, applicants should provide the following:

  • Cover letter, explaining which course you would like to take and how this opportunity will enhance your career goals
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Transcript (unofficial is acceptable)

DON’T WAIT!  Submit applications to Professor Senchyne. They are due February 2, 2023.

Students may apply for Rare Book School courses in any location. For more details about the application and course offerings, visit their websites: https://rarebookschool.org/schedule/ or https://www.calrbs.org/2024-courses/

NOTE:  The student who receives this funding must still apply to the Rare Book School course of their choice. This is a separate process, and the student is responsible for their application. Rare Book School is competitive, and acceptance is not guaranteed.  Applications to Rare Book School are due February 19, 2024.

Award Recipients must provide a report to the Friends within 6 weeks of attending RBS. For questions about the scholarship, call 608-265-2505, or email friends@library.wisc.edu.
