The Aug. 16 deadline to apply for the 2013 Multicultural Alumni Partnership is quickly approaching.
Each year, the University of Washington Alumni Association (UWAA) Multicultural Alumni Partnership (MAP) awards five scholarships to deserving University of Washington students who need financial assistance to assist with their progress toward a degree.
To qualify, applicants need to be a continuing, full-time UW undergraduate or graduate student in good standing with a minimum of one quarter at the UW and financial aid need as determined by Financial Aid Office.
An application should include the UWAA MAP scholarship application form; one reference letter from a faculty member, adviser, academic personnel, or community leader; a one-page typed narrative describing the applicant’s personal background, academic and career goals, financial need, commitment to diversity, and the applicant’s involvement with campus and/or community organizations; and a copy of the applicant’s UW transcript.
