WRF Fellowships and Levinson Awards


Announcing two research funding opportunities. These two opportunities share a common application with an updated deadline of June 30.  Please share widely.

Washington Research Foundation Fellowships

Washington Research Foundation Fellowships (WRFF) for advanced undergraduates support promising students who work on creative and sophisticated science and engineering research projects under the guidance of UW faculty. WRFFs target undergraduates who have already participated in undergraduate research for at least three quarters and who are working beyond an introductory level in a project that requires creativity and advanced knowledge.

Undergraduates who are interested in devoting a significant portion of time to research, which both complements their coursework and furthers their professional goals, are especially encouraged to apply.

Deadline (updated): June 30

Levinson Emerging Scholars Awards

The Levinson Emerging Scholars Program supports talented and highly motivated UW juniors and seniors who want to pursue creative and advanced research in biology, biochemistry, bioengineering, bioinformatics, chemistry, genetics, neuroscience, and related fields.

As Levinson Emerging Scholars, selected outstanding UW undergraduates will receive funding to support their research in these disciplines, including funding to present their findings at a professional conference.

By funding ten scholars each year, the Levinson Emerging Scholars Program nurtures a growing cadre of high caliber academic researchers who, in turn, will further innovation in biotechnology-related fields and enrich the future of academe.
