Application Deadline: March 25, 2016
Awards will be announced in late April 2016.
Eligibility: Scholarships are available for undergraduate students pursuing a major in the College of the Environment. Previous recipients may re-apply. Award decisions are based upon a combination of academic merit and financial need. At this time, all College of the Environment Scholarships require that students have unmet financial need as determined by the University of Washington Office of Student Financial Aid. Thus, you must have a current FAFSA or WASFA on file to be considered for these scholarships.
Award Amounts: Award amounts for all scholarships vary depending on financial need, but typically range from $2,500-$6,500 annually. Award amounts will be distributed over the course of Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters during the 2016-2017 academic year, paid directly to the recipient’s student account.
