Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards

Faculty & Staff

UW students are doing incredible academic and extracurricular work, but often don’t realize how they can connect that work with scholarship and fellowship resources. Encouragement and support from faculty and staff can make the difference in helping students to realize their potential and take their projects and studies to a higher level.

Thank you for taking this interest in your students! Our office is a resource in that endeavor and we appreciate being able to collaborate with faculty and staff across all three UW campuses to make scholarships available to our students and help them to access and competitively apply for many prestigious programs.

When university nomination is required, our office creates application processes intended to make these opportunities widely available to any student interested in the opportunities the scholarships provide, and will set a campus application deadline well in advance of the programs’ national deadline to allow for our internal selection processes.

The national scholarships we work with in this capacity are:

We work intensively with students applying for these and many more national and local scholarship programs. Please feel free to e-mail us or complete our online referral form to recommend students you think might be interested or strong candidates for national scholarships.
