      (2) Outstanding teaching and academic achievement shall be a consideration in awarding scholarships from the Fellowship Fund.

      (3) Priority shall be given to outstanding candidates specializing in foreign language reading research.  Candidates must be considered outstanding both as students and as teachers.

If you feel that you meet the above criteria and would like to be considered for the Darlene Wolf Fellowship, please submit an up-to-date curriculum vitae, a one-page research statement, and your teaching evaluations (numerical scores only).

CONFERENCE TRAVEL GRANT AWARD

Students who have had a paper selected for presentation at a professional conference may apply to the Graduate College for travel funds. Graduate College Travel Grants are relatively modest (usually $60-$300 for domestic conferences) and are awarded on a competitive basis.  No student will be funded by the Graduate College for conference travel more than once in any academic year.  The Graduate College deadlines for application typically fall in late September (fall semester) and late February (spring semester); these are announced on the Graduate College website (http://www.grad.uiuc.edu). The Department deadline is 2 weeks earlier.

The guidelines outlined in 1.7.3 must be followed in the preparation of the proposal. Typically, a brief abstract (250-375 words) is required. Proposals must be turned in to the department by the departmental deadline, which is typically two weeks earlier than the SLCL deadline and three weeks earlier than the Graduate College deadline. All proposals and documentation must be approved by the student’s advisor.

When sufficient funding is available, the Department may consider proposals not forwarded to the Graduate College for smaller grants.

Deadline: February 16, 2018 (department deadline).
