The School of Social Work does have departmental scholarships available for ALL students, regardless of citizenship status, these are primarily merit and financial-need based. Please complete the Funding Consideration Form and submit with your application. Additionally, it may be beneficial to start an external funding search early – one place to begin would be with the Graduate Funding Information Service. If you have additional questions, please contact our office at 206-543-5676.
If you have graduated from a WA state high school, you may be eligible for in-state tuition. Please complete the WASFA as soon as possible as this assists us in determining your financial need.
The Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program, or GO-MAP, and Leadership Without Borders are also great resources on campus for students. Prospective students can also explore scholarship opportunities and resources offered by Immigrants Rising and My Undocumented Life.
Unfortunately, the UW does not provide financial aid/assistance or scholarships for international students. The UW is a publicly funded institution, so financial aid is available only for U.S citizens or U.S permanent residents. U.S immigration laws require international applicants to provide proof of financial support before the university can formally admit a student and issue appropriate immigration documents.
