Winter Quarter Scholarship Workshops

Scholarships 101: Getting Started in the Search for Scholarships

  • Tuesday, January 14, 2014, 2:30-3:20, MGH 171
  • Monday, January 27, 2014, 4:30-5:20, MGH 171

Specifically designed for freshmen or first-quarter sophomores, this introductory workshop provides students with information to begin the scholarship search and to develop a competitive edge for merit-based scholarships. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/244, though drop-ins are also welcome.

Scholarships 201 for Continuing Students

  • Wednesday, January 22, 2014, 3:30-4:20, MGH 171
  • Thursday, February 6, 2014, 4:30-5:20, MGH 171

This workshop provides assistance to continuing undergraduate students looking to fund undergraduate academic years and graduate school. This will include information on discipline specific scholarships, campus funding opportunities, scholarship search sites, and tips to develop competitive applications. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/245, though drop-ins are also welcome.

CV/Resume Writing

  • Friday, Jan. 24, 2014, 12:30-1:20, MGH 171
  • Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014, 4:30-5:20, MGH 171

Develop your undergraduate CV/Resume for use in scholarship, fellowship, research opportunities, and graduate school applications! A Curriculum Vitae (“CV” or “vitae”) is a comprehensive, biographical statement emphasizing your professional qualifications and activities. A CV is similar to a resume, but an advantage to the CV format is the significant freedom to choose the headings and categories for your information and the strength reflected in their arrangement. Bring a working draft, such as an existing resume, and a list of activities including: Honors, Awards & Prizes received no longer than 5 years ago, Academic and Research Activities, Community Service Involvement, Work History, and Activities outside of the Academic Environment. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to work with Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards staff to develop and strengthen a draft of your CV! RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/237, though drop-ins are also welcome.

Personal Statement Writing

  • Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, 3:30-4:20, MGH 171
  • Monday, Feb. 3, 2014, 2:30-3:20, MGH 171

The Personal Statement is an important part of an application package. Applying for scholarships, internships, and graduate/professional programs often requires a personal statement or application letter. This type of writing requires you to outline your strengths confidently and concisely, which can be challenging. Personal Statement workshops will provide students with essential information to develop an understanding of not only writing about their interests, eligibility and suitability for applications, but also to learn how their statements provide evidence of their achievements that aren’t reflected in other parts of an application. RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/236, though drop-ins are also welcome.

Getting Great Letters of Recommendation

  • Monday, Jan. 27, 2014, 2:30-3:20, MGH 171
  • Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014, 3:30-4:20, MGH 171

Strong letters of recommendation can give your applications an edge, but many students wonder who to ask for letters and what is the best way to ask for a strong letter.  Getting great letters of recommendation requires thought and planning, and this workshop will guide students through the process.  Getting Great Letters of Recommendation Workshops provide tips and strategies for developing strong relationships with potential letter writers, an overview of the necessary materials and information needed by letter writers, strategies for asking for a letter, and advice on follow-up.  RSVP to attend at https://expo.uw.edu/expo/rsvp/event/289, though drop-ins are also welcome.

The Beinecke Scholarship provides $34,000 for graduate study in arts, humanities and social science fields to juniors (based on graduation date) of exceptional ability and achievement. Students must be nominated to compete for this scholarship, and the UW is allowed to nominate one student per year to compete for this national award.

To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must:

  • Have demonstrated superior standards of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement and personal promise during his or her undergraduate career.
  • Be a college junior pursuing a bachelor’s degree during the 2013-2014 academic year. “Junior” means a student who plans to continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a baccalaureate degree between December 2014 and August 2015.
  • Be a United States citizen or a United States national from American Samoa or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
  • Have a documented history of receiving need-based financial aid during his or her undergraduate years. Primary evidence of meeting this criterion is a student’s history of receiving need-based institutional, state or federal grants-in-aid. An institutional financial aid officer will be required to complete a Financial Data Sheet certifying that the student meets this criterion. During the selection process, the amount of financial need will be one of the factors considered with preference being given to candidates for whom the awarding of a scholarship would significantly increase the likelihood of the student’s being able to attend graduate school.
  • Plan to enter a master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences. Students in the social sciences who plan to pursue graduate study in neuroscience should not apply for a Beinecke Scholarship. Also, students who plan to pursue graduate study in professional programs (law school, business school, etc.) should not apply.

To learn more about this opportunity and the campus application and nomination process, please attend a Beinecke Scholarship Information Session:

  • Thurs., Nov. 14, 2013, 4:30 – 5:20 pm, 173R MGH
