Mary Gates Endowment for Studentsshow description Add to my gifts
Supports excellence in undergraduate education by creating new opportunities for students to become independent learners. The endowment, established in 1995, provides four kinds of awards that support and enrich undergraduate students' learning: Honors scholarships, research training grants, leadership grants and venture fellowships. While approximately 175 undergraduates benefit from this scholarship support each year, demand for support exceeds the University's resources. New gifts help increase opportunities for talented and highly motivated undergraduates to participate in the UW's special programs.
