Deadline for applications is April 8, 2016. Please share with your students who are looking forward to transferring to UW during the 2017-18 academic year (summer 2017 or later).

This scholarship program supports students who have demonstrated signs of exceptional ability in art, humanities, music, science, and/or leadership at one of the fifteen community colleges located around the Puget Sound region. The program selects Martin Achievement Scholars early in their community college career and will fund, encourage and support their study and eventual transfer to the University of Washington-Seattle Campus.

Martin Achievement Scholars may receive $5,000 in support for their second year at their community college and up to $12,000 per year for up to three years at UW (contingent upon successful admission to UW). Awarded on a competitive basis, the Martin Achievement Scholarship recognizes promise and accomplishment in academics, leadership, or contributions to the community.

· Be Washington State residents who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents who intend to become U.S. citizens;

· Be currently enrolled students at Bellevue, Cascadia, Edmonds, Everett, Grays Harbor, Green River, Highline, North Seattle, Olympic, Peninsula, Pierce, Seattle Central, Shoreline, South Seattle or Tacoma Community College pursuing their first baccalaureate degree;

· Have earned a minimum of 15 community college transfer credits.

· The selection committee gives no consideration to an applicant’s gender, race, color, creed, or national origin.

· Applicants for the 2016 Martin Achievement Scholarship should not plan to transfer to the UW-Seattle prior to the summer 2017.
