Class of 1962 Endowed Scholarship – new in 2016!

The Class of 1962 Endowed Scholarship provides financial assistance to current undergraduate students at UW. The donors to this endowment, members of the University of Washington Class of 1962, wish to target support to students who may not qualify for financial aid but for whom the cost of attending the University poses significant financial challenges. The donors aim to fund “the gap”: the growing number of middle-class students, many of whom do not qualify for federal funding or Husky Promise and must take out student loans and work full- or part-time to support their education.

To be eligible for this scholarship, students must be:

Undergraduates – freshmen, sophomores, juniors and non-graduating seniors (seniors are not eligible unless they intend to enroll as full-time students in at least summer or fall quarter 2016),

Washington State residents,

Have a 3.3 minimum GPA,

Demonstrate academic merit, leadership and service, and

Students who don’t qualify for most (or any) forms of free financial aid, must take out student loans and work full- or part-time to support their education, and for whom the cost of attending the UW poses significant financial challenges.
