The Domingo-Viernes Scholarship annually provides financial support to graduate or undergraduate students entering or transferring into the University of Washington who are committed to the principles of justice and equality and have demonstrated financial need. Created by the Inlandboatmen's Union, Region 37, the award memorializes Silme Domingo and Gene Viernes, two Filipino American labor activists murdered in 1981 for their union reform efforts and organizing against the Ferdinand Marcos dictatorship in the Philippines. Deadlines are traditionally in the early spring.
