Application Update

The Fall 2018 Rackham Graduate Admission Application will be available September 7, 2017.

Reports and Renewals

Year-end Report

A year-end report is due by July 21.

Year-end Reports must include:

  • Narrative Report
  • Itemized Expense Report (you must use this template)
  • (As necessary) Explanation of any departures from the approved budget

All of the above should be submitted via the RIW System. Your faculty sponsor and department administrator will indicate their approval of the year-end report through a link e-mailed to them by the RIW System.

Narrative Report

Please provide a general description of your activities. This should include how many meetings you held, their topics, format, location(s), attendance and character. What role did the website play in your work? To the degree that you know them, include outcomes like new collaborations that resulted from the Workshop. Did you accomplish what you expected to, or move in a direction that surprised the group’s organizers? What worked well, and what did not?

We are interested not only in hearing how Rackham’s support made a difference for your group, but also in any comments you may have about how the Workshop program is structured. Please let us know if there are elements that are particularly helpful and important for you, and should be preserved, or things that you think we should do differently.

Itemized Expense Report

Please complete the Itemized Expense Report. No receipts are necessary. Attach a narrative for any portions of the report that require explanation.

Renewal Applications

Applications for renewal of sponsorship for an existing group are due July 21.

You cannot begin a Renewal Application until you have submitted your Year-end Report

Once your Year-end Report is submitted, please go the RIW System Application Home to begin the Renew Application process.

Please explain any changes in focus, format or participation, and describe the activities planned for next year. Your renewal request should also include comments on how the transition to new coordinators and sponsors will be made, if that is applicable. Include comments on changes that you have made from the arrangements of the previous years, if that is applicable.
