University of Washington freshman, sophomore, and junior medalists were recently selected for their high scholastic standing and difficulty of coursework. They all entered the university through the Robinson Center for Young Scholars, a program that helps students from 7th through 10th grades enter the university. This is the first time that the freshman, sophomore, and junior medalists all came to the UW through early entrance programs.
Eleven University of Washington students recently received word that they’ve been awarded a Bonderman Travel Fellowship. Students traveling with this $20,000 fellowship set off on journeys that are at least eight months long and take them to at least two regions of the world. While traveling, students may not pursue academic study, projects, or research.
Last February, the Robinson Center for Young Scholars hosted an open house for Robinson Center students, parents, alumni, and parents of alumni. Conversation was bright, friendships were formed and renewed, and chocolate flowed freely from the chocolate fountain. Enjoy a few alumni, parent, and student reminiscences on their favorite memories of the Robinson Center.
