Mary Gates Scholarships ($5,000) – info sessions every Friday

note: Did you know that research courses at Friday Harbor Labs (FHL 450, 460, 470, and research apprenticeships) qualify for Mary Gates Research scholarships? For these you apply directly to FHL, so please read up on their process here or ask Joe for more information.

The Mary Gates Endowment for Students is currently accepting scholarship applications.  Mary Gates Scholarships provide $5,000 ($2,500 per quarter for two quarters) for students to pursue leadership or research projects.  These scholarships benefit students in the current academic year, and are open to all UW undergraduate students regardless of class year, major, residency status, or UW campus.  Deadlines are coming up soon, so attend an information session!
