Education Graduate Research Scholars (Ed-GRS) Advisory Board


Ed-GRS is a community of graduate students from diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds receiving the Advanced Opportunity Fellowship (AOF) in the School of Education. Ed-GRS offers students a support network of peers and assists students in becoming members of a supportive community of UW-Madison graduate students, faculty and staff. Ed-GRS is guided by an advisory committee consisting of staff, faculty, and students. With support from the Graduate School and other graduate research scholar communities, the School of Education welcomes our new Ed-GRS fellows and the many students, faculty, and staff that comprise our community.

Nomination Process

Once students have been accepted to one of our graduate programs, a committee of faculty members in each department reviews profiles of eligible applicants and submit a ranked list of nominees to the Ed-GRS director. Once the nominations have been approved by the Ed-GRS director, each department will contact the potential fellows directly. Students must accept or decline the offer no later than April 15th.
