Criteria Clarified: Ready for What is Next

Contributed by Sean Ferris (Office of Student Life, UW Seattle)

Ready for What is Next

Being ready for what’s next does not mean you have a signed contract for your first job, your admission to graduate school, or your grant approval for your post-doctoral research. In the context of Husky 100, being ready for what is next means you know what you want to achieve, what problem you want to solve, what movement you want to be a part of, what personal exploration you need to undertake… Most importantly it means that you know yourself and how the talents, experiences, and relationships you’ve developed as a Husky prepare you for your next step in life. 

The Husky 100 does not have a set path we expect you to follow. Your most compelling path forward in the context of this application is something that is personal to you, aligned with your values, and reflected in the things you have already done in life. This does not mean there needs to be a straight line between what you have done and what you intend to do. Life comes with twists and turns; help us understand those events, what you have learned from them, and how they prepare you for what you hope to undertake in the future.
