UW Graduate School

Awards and Funding Resources

The Graduate School provides funding assistance to campus units in support of graduate students, graduate faculty, academic and research programs, scholarly activities, and special initiatives that support and enhance graduate and undergraduate studies at the University of Washington. Most of this support comes from The Graduate School’s Fund for Excellence and Innovation (GSFEI).

All requests for funding must be made by authorized unit personnel and are placed through the GSFEI link in MyGrad Program.
