Mary Gates Research Scholarships are competitive scholarships intended to enhance the educational experiences of undergraduate students at the University of Washington while they are engaged in research guided by faculty. We hope that with research scholarships, students may focus more attention and time, deeping their inquiry into a discipline or project with a reduced financial burden. Students receive research scholarships to pursue research in a variety of disciplines. To learn more about research in the social sciences, arts, and humanities.
-Applicants must be matriculated UW undergraduate students registered full time (at least 12 credits) during the award period, pursuing a bachelor’s degree at the UW Bothell, Seattle or Tacoma campus. Candidates do not need to be U.S. citizens.
-Applicants must already be engaged in research with faculty, by the beginning of the quarter in which they apply. For example, students applying for the Autumn 2011 deadline must have started their research by the beginning of autumn quarter.
-Award recipients must continue with their research and remain full-time undergraduate students during their award period (except summer quarter—students need only to be enrolled for one credit to receive funds). If you have other scholarships, fellowships, awards or stipends supporting your research project and you are also selected for a Mary Gates Research Scholarship, you may not be eligible to receive the full amount of this award.
-The Mary Gates Endowment scholarship program reserves the right to adjust funding to promote equity among awardees. We may use information provided by the Office of Student Financial Aid/FAFSA to determine award amounts.
-Each student’s case is dealt with on an individual basis. If you would like to discuss your situation, please contact a Mary Gates Endowment staff member.
– A student cannot receive a Mary Gates Research Scholarship and a Mary Gates Leadership Scholarship at the same time.
Application Deadline is January 27, 2012
