UW alumni provide scholarships to current UW students through a number of different programs. Their office is currently accepting applications for FOUR different scholarships offered by alumni and open to undergraduate students all fields (eligibility requirements do vary between them)! Award amounts range from $1,000-$2,000.
1. Phillip Yin and Friends American Dream Foundation (PYFADF) was founded on the belief that every student should have the opportunity to fulfill their educational goals. As an alumnus of the University of Washington, Phillip Yin started the Foundation to help motivated students by sharing a part of their financial burden associated with going to a university. The PYFADF provides scholarships to currently enrolled undergraduate students with demonstrated passion and purpose, civic engagement and leadership, and strong communication skills who are able to provide a compelling story told in both an essay and a short video. Scholarships can be used toward tuition or related educational expenses such as books, lab fees, cost of living and others. This scholarship is open to undergraduates in all disciplines. Learn more at http://expd.uw.edu/expo/scholarships/pyfadf and apply at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/apply/465. Deadline to apply: April 19, 2017.
2. UW Class of 1962 Endowed Scholarship provides financial assistance to current undergraduate students (all class levels) at UW. The donors to this endowment, members of the University of Washington Class of 1962, wish to target support to students who may not qualify for financial aid but for whom the cost of attending the University poses significant financial challenges, and who demonstrate academic merit, leadership and service. The donors aim to fund “the gap”: the growing number of middle-class students, many of whom do not qualify for federal funding or Husky Promise and must take out student loans and work full- or part-time to support their education.
