UW Women's Center


The UW Women’s Center offers resources aimed at increasing access to education for campus and community members. We maintain updated Scholarship and Financial Aid materials for use during our regular hours of operation (9-5, Mon.-Fri.)

The Women’s Center administers three scholarships each year:

The scholarship is  awarded in the amount of $2000. Applications are due on May 31, 2016. Click here to download 2016-2017 Meena Vashee Scholarship Application.

Habib Making Connections Scholarship was endowed by the Habib family to support underrepresented, economically disadvantaged students pursuing degrees in the Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) fields.  Due to a generous donation from the Habib family, the Making Connections Program will be awarding scholarships to two students each year. (More information about this scholarship will be posted soon.)
