**IMPORTANT APPLICATION AND BENEFIT INFORMATION**
Faculty who choose to apply for a Fulbright award should apply concurrently for a University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Faculty Sabbatical in order to avoid any interruption of university benefits. Applicants who do not apply for and receive a Faculty Sabbatical will then incur personal expenses to sustain benefits during their Fulbright term. Faculty and staff are encouraged to meet with their payroll and benefits specialist in the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Human Resources Office prior to submitting a Fulbright application.
Applicants are encouraged to work with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to submit a Fulbright proposal. All applicants must, at a minimum, provide that office with a copy of the proposal. Contact Denise Ehlen, Director of Research and Sponsored Programs, 2243 Andersen Library, firstname.lastname@example.org, 262-472-5212, if you have questions or require additional information.
