The Wallenberg Fellowship is sinprired by U-M Alumnus Raoul Wallenberg and is awarded each year to a graduating senior of exceptional promise and accomplishment who is committed to service and the public good. The fellowship provides $25,000 to carry out an independent project of learning or exploration anywhere in the world during the year after graduation.
This fellowship is open to all U-M graduating seniors; US citizenship is not required. Applicants should propose projects that are immersive and feasible. Projects should break new ground, not be the continuation of an existing project or revisit a location where the applicant has already spent extensive time.
Proposals for the Wallenberg Fellowship are due to U-M contacts in each school/college by December 1st. Each U-M school/college may nominate up to two projects to the Provost’s office.
