The Foundation facilitates scholarships through the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. Applications are accepted from April 1 – April 30 each year and are considered for scholarships for the following school year.
Scholarships range from $2,500 to $10,000, depending on the applicant pool and match with funds available each year. These funds are awarded based on merit and/or need (as indicated by the FAFSA or WASFA). The funds are directly deposited to your student account on a quarterly basis (Autumn, Winter, Spring) before the tuition due date (which is generally the third week of the quarter) after full-time (12 credits) enrollment is verified. Scholarships cannot be applied to summer quarter. Students, including those that have previously received a SEFS scholarship, must apply annually for the following academic year. Awards must be used within the award year. The SEFS Scholarship Application Form is available April 1 to April 30; applications are due April 30.
If you enter the UW in the middle of the school year (i.e., Winter or Spring quarter), you are eligible to apply for the WPPF Scholarship Fund. For more information, please email email@example.com.
