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.
