We offer a limited number of fellowships from the Evans School’s endowed funds for entering students each year. These grants are awarded primarily on the basis of academic achievement and/or excellence in public service.
The application process for our fellowships is combined with the University of Washington (UW) Graduate School and Evans School application. Your application for admission is also your application for fellowship funding. No separate application is available for fellowships at the Evans School.
