Somali Student Association Scholarship

Website: N/A


The Somali Student Association of UW Seattle will be awarding 2 incoming Somali UW freshmen a scholarship varying in amount from $500-$1000, to assist in paying for tuition, books and other college related expenses. This scholarship is only for incoming UW Seattle Students.

The purpose of the scholarship is to assist incoming freshman with college tuition and books. We hope by providing the Somali youth with an opportunity to help with college expenses that would encourage more of our youth to pursue higher education. We’ve never had a scholarship dedicated to Somali people at the UW, so we wanted to create that change. 


Open to

-Incoming Somali freshmen, currently 12th graders
-Accepted into UW Seattle and plans on going there Fall 2020
-Plans to attend Somali Student Association meetings
