Spring Scholarships and Events

Spring quarter is a great time to encourage students to connect with our office as they consider their plans for next year and even next summer.  This is the perfect time for rising seniors to consider applying for post graduate fellowship opportunities like the Fulbright as well as graduate funding like the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

New this quarter:  We are offering 2 sessions focused on gap year and post bac opportunities.  RSVP at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/696

Now Accepting Applications for: Fulbright U.S. Student Program, Graduate Study Awards for the UK (Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Gates Cambridge, etc.)
