The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards (OMSFA) helps UW undergraduates develop the tools and personal insights necessary to match their goals with local and national merit-based scholarship opportunities. Scholarships, like the Martin Family Foundation Scholarships, are also available specifically for transfer students.
Each college, department, and office provides a wealth of resources. Make sure you ask your department what tutoring, advising, scholarships, research and study abroad opportunities there are available. The more you are plugged into the UW community, the more support you will have in your academic journey.
Continue to meet with your UW academic adviser! Don't just see them when you have a problem, keep in regular contact and inform them of your goal and expectations while you are here.
