  • LACIS has funding available for undergraduates (who meet application criteria) that are interested in pursuing internships or volunteer projects abroad.











    • Purpose: The Hilldale Undergraduate/Faculty Research Fellowships and Holstrom Environmental Scholarships support undergraduate research done in collaboration with UW–Madison faculty or research/instructional academic staff.
    • Award: Up to 80 Hilldale and 5 Holstrom awards are made each year. The student researcher receives $4,000, and faculty/staff research advisor receives up to $1,000 for costs associated with the research (e.g., supplies, faculty or student travel related to the project). If projects have more than one student or one faculty member together, the stipend levels will vary. Please note that eligible students must have junior standing at the time the application is submitted.
