The deadline for receipt of applications and letters of recommendation is MARCH 11, 2016. Scholarships are awarded by the English Department Undergraduate Education Committee and are announced before the end of Spring quarter.

Requirements: You must be an English major enrolled at the UW as an undergraduate for two quarters by the application deadline (March 11, 2016), and you must have a UW GPA of 3.5 and a UW English GPA of 3.7 with at least 10 credits of UW English course work completed. During the term of the scholarship, recipients must enroll in at least two quarters and complete a minimum of 6 credits each quarter. Some scholarships require demonstrated financial need, which may become a factor in awarding other scholarships.
