The 2020 I ♥ UW Bothell Scholarship Luncheon has been cancelled
Please enjoy this heartfelt message from Chancellor Wolf Yeigh to our donors
So many times over the last few weeks and months, I’ve been inspired by the strength and resilience the UW Bothell community has shown adapting to life during the coronavirus pandemic. You are an important part of that community and I want to let you know how disappointed I am that we had to cancel this year’s I ♥ UW Bothell Luncheon. I also want to tell you how grateful I am for your generous support of the scholarship funds that allow so many of our students to pursue their dream of a college education.
Thank you again for caring about our students and for all the ways you step up to support them in good times and in bad. The world is a better place because of UW Bothell, and I know UW Bothell is a better place because of you. I look forward to the day when we can all safely gather once again. In the meantime, stay safe, healthy, and hopeful.
You empower our students to go into the world and pursue their dreams
Since the first I ♥ UW Bothell Luncheon in 2018, our community has raised over $600,000 for scholarships. Students from all five schools have benefited from hundreds of donations made to 26 different scholarships over the last two years. We are so proud of what YOU - our friends and supporters - have made possible.
The impact of a scholarship transcends beyond the financial award. We are proud to share videos featuring two of our incredible students, Midia and Collin, whose scholarships were made possible by the 2019 I Heart UW Bothell Luncheon. Scholarships provided Midia and Collin with the opportunity -- and inspiration -- to find meaningful ways to get involved on campus, and even give back to their own communities. We hope you enjoy hearing about how your support has created a ripple effect in their lives, both on and off campus.
Please enjoy these two short video messages from our student scholars!
With support from his scholarship, Collin (STEM ’20) was able to stay in school and pursue his passion for helping others build community in the outdoors.
Scholarships allowed Midia (IAS ’20) to participate in the Washington D.C. Human Rights Seminar, which inspired her to do more for the world.
Our students have recently returned to their virtual classrooms for spring quarter. We are proud of the resilience and determination they have demonstrated as they navigate this uniquely challenging time. Through the COVID-19 Student Emergency Fund and Student Scholarships we can help provide financial stability allowing our students to stay on track to graduate.
A heartfelt thanks to our generous corporate sponsors:
