Graduate students at UW-Madison are encouraged to participate in professional meetings, conferences, and networks. Up to $2000 in funding per student is available during fellowship years to support conference travel or specific research projects. Additional funding for conference participation will be available from the departments and program faculty. ITP Fellows’ participation in the network of interdisciplinary training programs established through this IES grant program also enhances their research and professional opportunities.
ITP Fellows share a suite in the Education Sciences building. A half-time project coordinator and half-time project assistant provide administrative and program support for students and faculty. Each Fellow has access to a personal work space and PC, as well as to high-level statistical software and information processing tools and experts. Although many students also have office space in their disciplinary homes, the ITP Fellows Work Area provides a common community space that allows students to network and communicate across disciplines.
