The University of Washington provides a wonderful environment for scholarship, and the City of Seattle provides an excellent environment for a PhD student.

The Seattle area supports a wide variety of arts and cultural organizations as well as pretty much any type of recreational activity you can imagine. The outdoor lifestyle is possible year-round and there are numerous parks and vacation destinations only a short drive from the city.
