Founders Fellows Recipients

2018 Founders Fellows 

The UW Bothell Office of Research is proud to announce the 2018 UW Bothell Founders Fellow Scholars. These $1,000 scholarships are made possible due to the generous support of the UW Bothell Founders Endowed Fellowship which was established by Dick and Virginia Chappelle; Maryel Duzan, Max Gellert, Rod Proctor and Lynn Ries. The purpose of these scholarships is to encourage and recognize the participation of undergraduate students in research in all disciplines and inter-disciplines represented on the UW Bothell campus. Please join us in congratulating these distinguished undergraduate researchers.
