Fund your project: Husky Seed Fund

Inclusive. Impactful. Inventive.

Calling all UW students from all campuses!

 

Do you have an innovative idea that would enhance the UW student experience? The Husky Seed Fund has the resources to make your idea a reality! Created by students for students, The Husky Seed Fund provides up to $5,000 for you, or a small team, to pursue your passions and bring your projects to life.

Awardees develop project management and leadership skills while they execute impactful and inventive strategies to elevate the Husky experience. This is a truly unique opportunity to strengthen the entire Husky community by promoting inclusivity and helping to make all students feel that they have a home at the UW. Previously funded projects include OpenSidewalks and HuskyADAPT, both of which have received national and state-wide recognition.  We are also proud to support the 2018 Husky Seed Fund winners, Capillaries Journal and One of Many.

 

The Husky Experience Student Advisory Council encourages all students to explore The Husky Seed Fund website, attend an information session, and/or contact seedfund@uw.edu for more information.
