Scholarships for Community College Transfer Students at the University of Washington
Washington NASA Space Grant Community College Transfer Scholarships are awarded to promising community college students planning to transfer to the University of Washington to continue their studies in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.
These competitive scholarships are based on academic achievement, personal essays, recommendations and future academic promise.
Applications are open to community college transfer students who will be entering the University of Washington in Autumn Quarter 2013. Community college transfer students who entered UW in Winter or Spring Quarter of 2013 are also eligible to apply.
Scholarships range from $1,000 to $5,000, and are awarded for one year at a time. Recipients may apply for renewal for an additional year, depending on availability of funding and providing that they maintain program requirements for their majors and a satisfactory GPA.
To be eligible, applicants must be Washington residents and U.S. citizens. Finalist interviews will be conducted in late March and notification of awards will be made in early May.
The Washington NASA Space Grant program values diversity and strongly encourages women, minorities and people with disabilities to apply.
