Energy Analysis & Policy Student Scholarship

Through a generous gift from Wes and Ankie Foell, the Energy Analysis and Policy (EAP) program is pleased to offer scholarships for new students enrolling in the EAP program. Up to 10 scholarships of $2,500 each will be awarded to incoming or current graduate students who choose to enroll in the EAP program in Spring or Summer 2020.

The 2020 award competition is open to any incoming or enrolled graduate student, from any department, who is eligible and chooses to add EAP to their graduate studies. In previous years, Wes and Ankie Foell generously provided scholarships to support international students in the EAP program.

What: $2,500 awards for UW-Madison graduate students who enroll in EAP in Spring or Summer 2020

When: Deadline to apply: September 5, 2020.
Awards will be made on a rolling basis starting June 15, 2020 through the summer.

How: To apply for the scholarship, apply to be part of the EAP program and mark the appropriate box on the application form. An unofficial transcript, a résumé, and a short essay are required for 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 a certificate or doctoral minor program.
  • Selected graduate students must enroll in EAP and move forward in the program, typically over a 2-year period.
  • Students enrolled in EAP on or before April 1, 2020 are not eligible to apply.

Applicants will be awarded on the following criteria:

  • Overall academic and professional excellence
  • Demonstrated or planned enrollment in EAP courses (especially 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 department of graduate degree, professional interests, and country/state of origin will also be considered.
  • Students will receive the $2500 in two installments: $1000 in the first semester, after enrolling in the program and making progress toward 1 or more required EAP courses; $1500 in the semester in which they will complete the certificate or minor requirements.
  • Up to 10 scholarships will be awarded.
