Now is a great time to remind students about local scholarship season. There are a lot of local to UW and local to Washington scholarships that are open or opening this month. Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards is offering several sessions to support students from search to statement. Please share these January workshops with your undergraduate students. Thanks so much!
Scholarship strategies for 2nd & 3rd year students
Our number one piece of advice for scholarships is to start early! Get an early start on your scholarship search and application process by finding out what it takes to become a competitive candidate. We’ll talk through what it means to be an active, and engaged student and best to highlight those qualities in an app! We’ll share upcoming opportunities as well as some ideas for the future-including graduate school funding, funding to go abroad and others!
