The Graduate School at the University of Wisconsin–Madison offers an open, dynamic and respectful learning and working environment for all members of our community.

We are committed to a strong, conscious effort to build diversity across our community, so it can reflect the richness of the world around us in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, economic status, physical limitation, religious beliefs or cultural background.

Graduate students at UW–Madison benefit from our commitment not only through the welcoming environment we nurture but through programs such as the Advanced Opportunity Fellowship, Graduate Research Scholars communities and the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society.

Prospective Students: Please visit the Graduate School's Admissions Information webpage for information on applying to our programs, including application fee grants ("waivers").
