Effective study strategies

Wildlands Studies Field Programs and the Gilman Scholarship

Advisors: Please share this important and time-sensitive scholarship information with your advisees.


Each year at least one Wildlands Studies participant earns a Gilman Scholarship. Although our field programs are one of the most affordable (usually less than tuition, room and board for the term), it can still be tough to make it work. Gilman Scholarship winners have joined us in Belize, Nepal, Tasmania, and we currently have one traveling with us to Nepal this fall! This scholarship awards up to $5000 for study abroad. BUT they have tight deadlines. The Winter or Spring 2019 program deadline is just when quarter students return to campus – October 2, 2018.


Wildlands Studies creates academically rigorous, rich, immersive learning experiences that connect students with the natural world, and bring your classroom experience to life. At the same time, we introduce you to active researchers and help establish your professional network. All facets that lead to employment and graduate school.

If you are a Pell Grant recipient, we encourage you to consider the Benjamin A Gilman Scholarship.

If this scholarship is not right for you, use our scholarship webpage to find one that is!

We welcome all applications for our 2018 Winter and Spring field programs.

As always, we are here to answer questions.

Brotherhood Initiative (BI) at UW

The benefits of study abroad are well documented, from increased confidence to an expanded worldview — and college students who study abroad are more likely to do better in school and graduate on time.

But that experience is often unattainable for a particular group of students: men of color. Of the more than 300,000 U.S. undergraduates who study abroad each year, an overwhelming majority are white women.

For students at the University of Washington, the Brotherhood Initiative (BI) wants to help level the field.

The schedule is flexible: schools need tutors Mon-Fri between 7:30 and 5pm. And we offer transportation to some of our partner schools that have the highest need for tutors.

Participate in a weekly Pipeline seminar and tutor for at least 2.5 hours a week at a Seattle school or community organization! All of our courses are Credit/No Credit, are I & S credits, and are listed under EDUC 401. The number of credits a student receives depends on the number of tutoring hours completed in addition to seminar attendance. 2 credits: weekly seminar and tutor 2-3 hours per week. Seminars are a fantastic opportunity to learn about issues in public education and tutoring strategies, while reflecting and learning from your tutoring site.

EDUC 401A Literacy in the Justice System
Class time determined by students

Info Session May 7th, 2018 5:30pm 7:00pm in MGH 224: RSVP here.

Do inequalities in the education system lead to criminal behavior? Can adult education in the criminal justice system mitigate the effects of these inequalities? Find out for yourself with this unique opportunity to work with one of society’s most under-served populations. The Education department at the King County Correctional Facility encourages you to stretch your boundaries and join us in a quarter of educational enrichment. With the opportunity to tutor inmates in a GED (General Educational Development), ABE (Adult
Basic Education), and/or ESL (English as a Second Language) curriculum, you have the freedom to challenge your own creativity, gain teaching skills, and help the community by being your student’s first positive educational experience. Our seminar series will focus on personal tutoring strategies and techniques, broader questions and issues surrounding the criminal justice system, and the positive outcomes of adult education in our community. We will hear from speakers who work in adult education as well as adult learners who are the product of adult education. Be prepared for a dynamic experience as you “engage in such incredibly rewarding partnerships with people who really just want the chance to learn that maybe no one else has given them before.” (Quote from current tutor).

PLEASE NOTE: You must be 21 years or older to work at the King County Correctional Facility and you may register for a maximum of 3 credits for this class. Also a criminal background check will be completed for all interested students (previous convictions DO NOT automatically bar your entrance into the jail). Please note that this is a 2 quarter commitment.
