How: To apply for the scholarship, apply to be part of the EAP program and mark the appropriate box on the application form.


  • Students in almost any graduate degree program at the University of Wisconsin—Madison who are eligible to enroll in EAP are thus also eligible for this award. Check with your graduate coordinator to ensure you are able to enroll in certificate programs.
  • Selected graduate students must enroll in EAP, and move forward in the program over a 2-year period.
  • Students must hold a passport from a country outside the United States (dual citizens are also eligible).
  • Students enrolled in EAP on or before May 1, 2019 are not eligible to apply.


Applicants will be awarded on the following criteria:

  • Overall academic and professional excellence
  • Demonstrated enrollment in EAP courses (especially Env. St./PA/URPL 809  – Intro to Energy Analysis and Policy and Env. St. 900 – Professional Skills in Energy Analysis and Policy)
  • Among excellent candidates, diversity in terms of country of origin, department of graduate degree, and professional interests will also be considered.

Scholarship Implementation:

  • Students will recieve the $5000 over a period of four semesters, if they complete 1 or more required EAP classes per semester ($1000 for 3 semesters; $2000 in 4th). If EAP requirements are fulfilled in less than 4 semesters, then the balance of the scholarship will be awarded upon certificate completion.
  • Up to five scholarships will be awarded
