Richard M. Milanovich Fellowship

If you would like to apply for the Richard M. Milanovich Fellowship, sponsored by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians,  see for more details.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended, seeks to guarantee both a student’s right of access to records and the confidentiality of student information. Therefore, GW may not disclose information contained in education records without the student’s written consent.  To be considered for the Milanovich Fellowship, student information must be provided to the 3rd party sponsor of the fellowship, namely the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians (Tribe).  This is necessary because the Tribe is an active participant in the review and selection of fellows.  By submitting this application and essay you are indicating your affirmative consent for the university to share the information provided with the Tribe.  The Tribe has agreed to treat all information submitted in accord with these confidentiality rules.

Please note that all students selected for a fellowship will be required to execute a release authorizing GW to disclose the student’s educational record to the Tribe on an ongoing basis, including information about any disciplinary issues.   If you have any questions about these requirements, please contact Wendy Helgemo at 202-994-0247.
