The Autumn application cycle for Mary Gates Scholarships is now open!

Mary Gates scholarships are open to ALL students currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree at UW.  Information sessions will occur next week, with application deadlines quickly approaching in mid- to late-October. 

The Mary Gates Endowment for Students is currently accepting scholarship applications.  Mary Gates scholarships provide up to $5,000 ($2,500 per quarter for up to two quarters) for students to pursue leadership or research/creative/scholarly activities.  These scholarships benefit students in the current academic year, and are open to all UW undergraduates.  This includes students on all three UW campuses (Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma), in all disciplines and majors, in all class years (first-year through post-bac) and all residency statuses (including international and undocumented students).
