UWRA Graduate Student Fellowship in Aging

Application Deadline:   February 6, 2015   (12 noon, PST)

The University of Washington Retirement Association has endowed a fellowship to support graduate students of outstanding academic merit who have a demonstrated academic and personal interest in aging-related issues or concerns.

This fellowship will provide a monthly stipend equivalent to the PDTA 2 level (currently $2,131/month), GAIP health insurance, and a waiver of state-tuition (except for U-PASS fee and international student fee). The fellowship must be used in 2015-16 academic year.

At the time of application, students must be matriculated in a UW graduate degree tuition-based program and not in their last year of study. (Students in fee-based programs are not eligible.) The recipient of the award must be enrolled in full-time credits (at least 10) during the quarter in which he/she takes the fellowship.

Please see our website at http://www.grad.washington.edu/students/fa/uwra/index.shtml for further information. Detailed on that page are also the application requirements and process (statements, letters of recommendation, etc.) as well as criteria for selection.

The selected recipient(s) will be invited to attend the UWRA luncheon in late April. They will also be asked to give an informal presentation to UWRA members on their research/academic and personal interests related to aging during the year of the award.

Questions regarding this opportunity may be directed to The Graduate School, Office of Fellowships and Awards, megray@u.washington.edu or 206-685-4248.
