2017-18 SAFS Undergraduate Recruiting Scholarship
Application deadline: April 9, 2017

The School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences (SAFS) is pleased to announce the availability of the SAFS Undergraduate Recruiting Scholarship for the 2017-18 Academic Year.

The SAFS Undergraduate Recruiting Scholarship is awarded to incoming UW undergraduates who exhibit exceptional academic achievement demonstrated by overall GPA and other measurable academic merit. Financial need may also be considered – need will be determined by the UW Office of Student Financial Aid and requires submission of the 2017 FAFSA.

Applicants should be incoming undergraduate freshmen or transfer students in good academic standing who intend to pursue a major in Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and who will be enrolled at least one quarter during the 2017-18 academic year. Students who have already begun attending the UW may apply for scholarships via the current student application.

Scholarships may be awarded to more than one applicant – award amounts vary.

Questions about the application or eligibility may be directed to the SAFS Undergraduate Adviser, 206-543-7457.

Award notifications will be made in late April. Awardees will be expected to write a note of appreciation to the donor(s) who contributed to the scholarship endowment.
