Jumpstart

Application process

If you are interested in joining Jumpstart, you need to do three things:

  1. Attend a Jumpstart Info Session .
  2. Fill out an online application.
  3. Attend an interview. (you will have the opportunity to sign up for one at an info session).

Information sessions provide you with the details about the work we do,  the commitment we require, and to provide more information about the interview and selection process.  At each info session, students are given a chance to ask questions and sign up for a interview. Students are encouraged to attend an info session as early as possible, because we only have a limited number of spaces available each year.

We recruit our members at the start of each academic year and the application cycle typically closes by the end of Fall quarter.  If you missed the opportunity to apply for the current year, you can also get involved by volunteering at events throughout the year.  Contact one of our Volunteer Coordinators to learn about any upcoming events:  jstart@u.washington.edu.
