As a reminder, Wisconsin Idea Fellowships are awarded annually to undergraduate student projects (in partnership with a community organization and with a faculty or instructional staff mentor) working to solve issues identified by local or global communities. Projects can receive up to $7,000 in total funding, which includes a stipend award and a separate supply and expense budget, and students receive 3 academic credits. Complete fellowship information is available on the Morgridge Center for Public Service website: http://morgridge.wisc.edu/students-wisconsin-idea-fellowships.

This is a competitive and prestigious undergraduate fellowship and a great opportunity to develop proposal writing, budget planning, communication, critical and creative thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills, as well as to potentially conduct research, and build professional networks.
