In 2007, the UW Bothell Alumni Council, with the assistance of the Business Program’s Project Management class (BBUS441), began the process of endowing a scholarship fund. After only two short years the Council was able to see this dream of providing financial assistance to UW Bothell undergraduate, graduate and certificate seeking students come true. This past December the Council fully funded a $25,000 UW Bothell Student Support Endowed Fund. The Council is currently working on an ongoing funding plan to increase the endowment and thus the number of scholarships over the next couple of years. We look forward to sharing stories of the students who benefit from this scholarship.
If you would like to support this scholarship opportunity for students at UW Bothell by making a contribution to the endowment, please contact Melissa Arias, Associate Director of Advancement or go online to www.uwb.edu and click on "make a gift" (fund acronym UWBALU).
