Three CALS projects awarded Brittingham funding

Three CALS projects have been awarded funding by the UW–Madison Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs through the Brittingham Trust.

  • Reba Luiken, director of Allen Centennial Garden, will receive $1,400 over three years to support her proposal “Market Science at the UW-Madison.
  • West Madison Agricultural Research Station will receive $5,000 in 2022 to support its Undergraduate Student Internship program.
  • Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), which is cosponsored by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the College of Engineering, will receive $6,000 in 2022 to support its Residential Learning Community.

The Brittingham Trust supports general university objectives with an emphasis on projects in the arts and humanities. The fund benefits innovative or experimental projects that may subsequently be funded through traditional sources, interdisciplinary activities, and special projects that contribute to the university’s knowledge base or provide distinctive learning experiences for students or faculty. The fund is controlled by outside trustees, comprised primarily of the Brittingham family. Grants are awarded on a calendar-year basis.

More information about the Brittingham Funds is available at the Office of the Provost website.
