Alan R. Spence Transfer Student Support Fund - $500 Award!
There is a new transfer student support fund at UW that recently transferred and soon-to-transfer students should know about!
Alan R. Spence, Ed.D., began his career in educational administration in 1970 at the Evergeeen State College as a Chief Accountant. At age 29 he became the youngest business officer in Washington state as the Vice President of Business and Finance at St. Martin's College. In 1981, he moved to Pierce College as the Associate Dean of Administrative Services where he was later promoted to the position of District Vice President of Administrative Services in 1987. He spent a total of 24 years at Pierce College. The final years of his distinguished career were spent at Seattle Community College District as the Chief Financial Officer. He retired in 2008.
Valuing the community college system as a place where students can begin their journey through higher education regardless of their circumstances and backgrounds, Alan Spence worked tirelessly to ensure that institutional barriers would not impede a student's ability to be successful.
The Alan R. Spence Transfer Support Fund was established to support transfer students and their educational pursuits at the University of Washington.
To be eligible to apply for the award for the 2012-2013 school year,
