Grant Funding Request Form

The Graduate Programs Committee oversees a limited amount of discretionary funds for small individual grants to LL.M. and S.J.D. students. These funds are meant to support extraordinary research opportunities and activities that are not already available to you within or near the Law School, such as presenting a paper at a conference or undertaking research that cannot be done in Madison. The purpose for which funds are requested must be directly relevant to your research and supported by your advisor. Funding will be granted on a case-by-case basis, at the discretion of the Graduate Programs Committee and its Chair.
