UWRA Graduate Student Fellowship in Aging

UWRA Graduate Student Fellowship in Aging

Application Deadline: March 8, 2010

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 one-quarter fellowship will provide a monthly stipend equivalent to the PDTA 2 level (currently $1761/month), GAIP health insurance, and a waiver of state-tuition . The fellowship must be used in 2010-11, but the choice of the quarter will be left to the discretion of the graduate student in consultation with his/her department.

At the time of application, students must be matriculated in a UW graduate degree program and not in their last year of study. 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. Students in fee-based programs are eligible but tuition waiver coverage would work differently.

Please see our website at 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) should plan to attend the UWRA luncheon on April 27, 2010. 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, or 543-7152.
