Applications for 2017-2018 MAP Scholarships are now open. Applications must be received by May 12, 2017. 

Founded in 1994, the Multicultural Alumni Partnership (MAP) is dedicated to promoting diversity at the UW and in the UW alumni community.

MAP awards scholarships to deserving University of Washington students who need financial assistance to assist with their progress toward a degree at the UW. Funding for these scholarships comes from contributions from UW alumni and friends as well as proceeds from the Bridging the Gap Breakfastheld annually on Homecoming Saturday.

How to Apply

Completing the online application process includes two steps:

Step 1: Complete the MAP Scholarship online application questionnaire. You will receive a confirmation code and instructions for Step 2 when you submit your application.

Step 2: Upload three scholarship supporting documents:

  • One reference letter from faculty member, adviser, academic personnel, or community leader (signed reference letter must be scanned and uploaded by the applicant)
  • A one-page typed narrative describing the applicant’s personal background, academic and career goals, financial need, commitment to diversity, and the applicant’s involvement with campus and/or community organizations
  • Copy of UW transcript (unofficial transcript acceptable)

Additional materials will not be accepted. We will not accept phone calls regarding application status. Recipients will be contacted by telephone. Non-recipients will not be notified; if you have not been contacted within five weeks of the application deadline, you were not selected. However, the Office of Student Financial Aid will retain your application in case other scholarship funds become available. All information will be kept confidential.
