Financial Aid

The primary source of financial aid for the Evans School comes from the University of Washington (UW) Office of Student Financial Aid. The most common forms of UW-administered financial aid are work-study awards and Stafford or Perkins (NDSL) loans. You will need to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the office’s deadline for priority consideration.
