Scholarships from the Mary Gates Endowment for Students

The Mary Gates Endowment for Students is currently accepting scholarship applications.  Mary Gates scholarships provide $4,000 ($2,000 per quarter for two quarters) for students to pursue leadership or research projects of their own choosing and design with guidance from a mentor.  Previous recipients have come from all fields of study, including the arts, humanities, social sciences and STEMM.

Mary Gates scholarships benefit students in the current academic year, and are open to all UW undergraduate students regardless of class year, major or residency status.  Students from Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses are all encouraged to apply.  Deadlines are coming up soon, so students should begin the application process and attend an information session and application workshop.
