  • Applications for the 2024-2025 academic year will open in June 2024.

Washington NASA Space Grant Community College Transfer Studentships 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 studentships are based on academic achievement, personal essays, and future academic promise.

Applications are open to community college transfer students who will be entering the University of Washington in fall quarter 2024. Community college transfer students who entered UW in winter or spring quarter of 2024 are also eligible to apply.

Studentships range from $2,000 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.

Eligibility requirements

To be eligible, scholarship applicants must:

  • Be a resident of Washington state
  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Have a minimum GPA of 3.3
  • Have applied to transfer to UW in fall quarter 2024 or transferred into UW either winter or spring quarter 2024
  • Be pursuing an undergraduate degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM)

Studentship applications are open to STEM majors planning to transfer to any of the University of Washington’s three campuses (Seattle, Bothell, or Tacoma). To see lists of majors offered by the University of Washington:

Only students majoring in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics are eligible for support. This does not include health majors such as medical technology and nursing.

Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium values diversity. We especially encourage students to apply if they are from communities historically excluded from STEM — students with traditionally marginalized genders, BIPOC, students with disabilities, and students from rural communities.

Questions should be directed to nasa@uw.edu.

How we review applications

Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium uses a holistic review approach to evaluate applications. Your entire application, including your essays and extracurricular activities, is important in this individualized application review. We encourage you to use your application to share with us who you are and what is important to you.

All applications will be read and evaluated. Finalists will be invited to interview with Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium staff during the week of August 21. Notification of scholarship awards will be made before Labor Day.
