    Please send the recommendation form to two references:
    • A personal reference (from a family member, community member, or employer)
    • An educational reference coming from an individual familiar with the applicant's school achievement and career goals (preferably a teacher or administrator at the current school of attendance).

    Reference letters should be emailed to scholarships@uw.org from your references email address from your references’ email addresses and not from your own. If they would like to submit the information in their own format, that is acceptable, but the letters should answer all questions on the form.

    References will be verified if you are chosen as a finalist.

  4. If you are selected as a semifinalist, you will be contacted for an interview with our selection judges. Interviews of finalists will be conducted in late April. Award recipients will be informed by May 13.

Additional Information: Not all applicants will receive a scholarship. Applications will be reviewed by the scholarship committee, but all information will be kept confidential and will not be shared without prior permission of the applicant.
