Application deadline extended to June 5th!
We are pleased to inform you of the partial tuition, need-based scholarships that are available for Jewish undergraduates attending the University of Washington during the 2020-2021 academic year. The Berol-Shindell Scholarship has been established at the Hillel Foundation for Jewish Life at the University of Washington.
This scholarship was created when Mr. Berol was forced to forego his studies at the University of Washington to help provide for his family’s welfare. The scholarships are, therefore, being offered to undergraduate Jewish students in financial need who plan to attend, or are currently attending, the University of Washington.
During this time of the Coronavirus, all applications will need to be mailed to Hillel at 4745 17th Ave NE; Seattle, WA 98105 and postmarked on or before June 5th, 2020 or emailed to Amee as a pdf. If you have any questions, please e-mail our Executive Director, Amee Sherer.

The application process typically starts in mid-January with applications due mid-March. This is a needs based scholarship. If you qualify, fill out the application and submit. Please email Amee Sherer, our Executive Director, so she can alert the Foundation that you are applying. There is not a way to designate yourself as Jewish on the application.
