Please share the details below with your students who are planning to transfer to UW Seattle this summer 2020, fall 2020, winter 2021 or even those who have already transferred to UW but have not yet earned more than 18 UW credits.

Please note that students from ANY Washington State community college are potentially eligible to apply for this scholarship (see complete details on the website and eligibility details below).

The Martin Family Foundation Honors Scholarship Program enables community college students of exceptional ability and outstanding achievement to complete their baccalaureate degrees at the University of Washington Seattle. Martin Scholars are encouraged to join departmental honors programs at UW Seattle, if available. Applicants are considered for superior strength of character, intellectual ability, and sense of purpose. They are expected to have well-formulated ideas about the direction of future studies and subsequent careers. There should be evidence that a Martin Scholarship will encourage pursuit of a program of education most likely to fulfill the applicant's potential. Financial need may be considered but is not a requirement.

The scholarship provides $12,000/year for 2-3 years at UW Seattle (depending on course of study and academic plans). Please note that this scholarship is currently only available for studies at UW Seattle (unfortunately, not Bothell or Tacoma).


  *   Applicants must be Washington State residents who are in any one of the following three categories: (1) US citizens, or (2) US Permanent Residents, or (3) Eligible for in-state tuition through HB 1079 or DACA standards.
     *   For additional information about HB 1079 or DACA standards qualification, please visit https://readysetgrad.wa.gov/wasfa-washington-application-state-financial-aid, and please read about UW’s requirements at https://www.washington.edu/financialaid/hb-1079-real-hope/ and https://depts.washington.edu/reach/hb-1079undocumented-students/.

  *   Washington State community college transfer students who are currently enrolled at the University of Washington Seattle may not have earned more than 18 UW credits by the application deadline of July 6, 2020.
