The Vilas Life Cycle Professorship applications will be processed through the UW-Madison Inclusion in Science & Engineering Leadership Institute (WISELI) and the Office of the Provost. Applications will remain confidential within the review committee. The Provost’s Office has final approval of all VLCP awards recommended by the award committee. Awardees must agree to submit a report of activities upon completion of the Professorship period. WISELI will also request participation in evaluation efforts for the program. Once awarded, the processing of expenditures of the grant funds occurs within the recipient’s department or unit.
