Dream Project

Admissions Workshop Weekend (AWW)

October 27th, 2018

Admissions Workshop Weekend (AWW) is the largest on-campus event that the University of Washington Dream Project hosts. The Dream Project invites high school seniors to an intensive day of college application work from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on October 27th 2018 at the UW-Seattle campus. College admissions counselors, writing tutors, and Dream Project mentors will be present to support students in applying to colleges and post-secondary education opportunities. Regardless of where students are in the college application process, be it having their final draft ready or just starting from scratch, they will receive support through to completion and have all of their questions answered. Assistance with completing financial aid paperwork and scholarship applications is also available. There will also be a Resource Fair featuring representatives from different colleges and post-secondary programs for students to explore at the event. Lunch and limited transportation will be provided.
