[UW]: Apply to join the Husky Experience Student Advisory Council

Help advance the Husky Seed Fund, an award that brings to life innovative ideas by students that are inclusive, impactful, and practical to the UW. Gain valuable experience advancing and managing a program that will impact thousands of students at UW.

What types of student-led efforts would improve the overall Husky Experience? What would inspire students to create such a project and apply for funding? You be the judge!

The Provost’s Office will provide the funding, basic structure and guidance for HESAC members to lead and advance the Husky Seed Fund. In work groups, members will: gain program management, leadership, and financial management skills; help fellow Huskies by shaping how dollars impact their ideas; and receive coaching from Provost’s Office staff on how to include this experience on a resume, talk about it in person and apply lessons learned and skills gained going forward.
