Congratulations Honors student Sam Sudar, UW’s most recent Gates Cambridge Scholar! The highly competitive scholarship supports graduate study at the University of Cambridge, England, and brings recognition of accomplishments and future promise. This year, 37 students from across the United States were selected from an original applicant pool of more than 700 students. Sudar is the fourth UW student to be named a Gates Cambridge Scholar since the awards were first made in 2000.
Eight Asian and American universities—University of Washington, Columbia, Harvard, Korea, National University of Singapore, Peking, Waseda, and Yale—are considering the formation of a Global Honors College that will regularly assemble groups of faculty and students to study, on site and on line, issues of enduring and emerging global concern.
Nearly 900 fifth through eighth grade students from around Washington were honored for their outstanding verbal and/or mathematical abilities by the University of Washington at an Award Recognition Ceremony on March 29, 2009.
