International Student Services



The University of Washington Bothell is a public institution; therefore no state or federal financial assistance is offered to international students. Students, their families and sponsors must assume all financial responsibility for tuition and living expenses which is why financial documentation is required with an application. It is very important that applicants review the expected expenses before deciding to apply for admission.

International students currently enrolled in the UW have access to limited institutional funding options such as merit based scholarships, generic scholarships open to all UW students, grants that support various student experiences, and on campus student work positions.

Natalie K. Lang International Student Scholarship

The University of Washington Bothell offers the Natalie K. Lang International Student Scholarship for matriculated international students. The application is submitted online, and is available each fall quarter.

This scholarship is in remembrance of Natalie Kay Lang, an alumna and former International Student Advisor at UW Bothell.
