Transfer Student Celebration Week

October 21-25, 2024

Join us as we recognize and celebrate our UW transfer students through a week of engagement opportunities and events. Our goal, especially this week but throughout the year, is to increase awareness of our transfer students and illustrate the common barriers and the diverse needs and identities of our transfer student population.

Our Transfer Student Celebration Week is inspired by and held in conjunction with National Transfer Student Week


All events are sponsored by UW Departments and Recognized Student Organizations. If you are hosting an event during the week and would like your event highlighted, please submit using the form below!

As a Martin Honors Scholarship recipient, one thing I believe is that it is important for transfer students to be aware of transfer-specific scholarship opportunities, such as the Martin Scholarships or the Washington NASA Space Grant transfer student scholarship. My biggest resource in finding scholarships was just browsing the university website and our Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships and Awards. They make opportunities very easy to find!
