Types of Awards
• Need: The majority of scholarships, ranging from $1,000 to $2,500, consider a
student's merit and financial need in determining eligibility for award. You must be
eligible for Financial Aid to be considered for these awards.
• EOP: There are a number of scholarships that take into consideration affiliation with
the UW Educational Opportunity Program. If you are not affiliated, contact the EOP
Counseling Center in Mary Gates Hall, Rm 133 or at 206.543.7132.
• Merit: There are limited scholarships that are awarded based on academic merit
with no requirement for financial need. In some cases international students who
have been admitted to the Foster School are eligible for these merit scholarships.
• To qualify for a need based scholarship you must file a Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA) with the Federal Student Aid Program.
• We recommend mailing the FAFSA by February 15, 2013, to receive timely
information for scholarship purposes.
• If you miss the February deadline, we still encourage you to submit a FAFSA, as
these are sometimes accepted past the deadline.
• Most scholarships are awarded to students who can demonstrate financial need.
For this reason, all students should consider applying for UW Financial Aid, even if
you do not think that you will be eligible. The scholarship committee uses the FAFSA
information to assist with selections even if it is determined that you are not eligible
for support by the UW Financial Aid Office.
Scholarships Are Awarded Yearly
Most scholarships are for one academic year. If you received a scholarship last year, you will need to apply again unless your scholarship letter indicated it was a renewable award. If you miss the deadline, you cannot apply again until the following academic year.
