Dhirendra Sikdar Memorial Scholarship

The Dhirendra Sikdar Memorial Scholarship was established in 1989 to support graduate students in the atmospheric sciences master’s or doctoral programs. The scholarship was established to honor a former UWM faculty member with a keen interest in meteorology. A committee of faculty members within the discipline will select students for this scholarship based on the quality of their overall academic record, including grade point average, research and other accomplishments, and the recommendation of faculty members.

For optimal consideration, students should fill out these parts of the general scholarship application and make sure the most recent transcript is uploaded:

  • Co-curricular Activities
  • Community Service and Volunteer Work
  • Work Experience
  • Academic and Career Goals

You may edit your general application at any time prior to the deadline for the Dhirendra Sikdar Memorial Scholarship.
