Academic Staff Professional Development Grants

 

The Language Institute on regular basis runs a grant program to support professional development activities by UW-Madison academic staff  who teach or advise students studying languages other than English or direct or coordinate language programs; and who are affiliated with the Language Institute.

The grant is intended to support professional development activities that align with the mission of the Language Institute.
