BILINSKI FELLOwShIP PROGRAM A generous gift of $500,000 from the Russell J. and Dorothy S. Bilinski Fellowship Fund, a program of the Bilinski Educational Foundation, offered 10 Ph.D. candidates in the social sciences and humanities in the College of Letters and Science unparalleled support as they moved into the advanced stage of doctoral study, providing summer research and writing support as well as a full academic year fellowship for dissertation writing. Aside from serving as an institutional home for the Fellows, the Humanities Institute provided the Bilinski cohort with administrative and pro- gramming support.


With all of the students now graduated or nearing completion of their dissertations, they had a chance to reflect on the difference the Bilinski Fellowship had on their progress and success at a cer- emony and luncheon in spring 2013 with members of the Bilinski Foundation board. Michelle Schwarze, who completed a Ph.D. in political science and received a three-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, remarked: “I would not have been able to finish my dissertation nor make the contacts that proved useful in applying for jobs had I not had the support of the Bilinski Foundation during my candidacy.”
