Your idea could become reality with a seed funding award of up to $5000. This is your chance to develop leadership and team building while creating something truly unique for your fellow Huskies.

Projects must be inclusive, impactful and inventive. Overall, the Husky Fund Student Advisory Council (HESAC) looks for projects that help students feel at home at the UW and engage with the Husky community.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible to apply for this program, you (or the group) must be enrolled at either the UW Bothell, Seattle or Tacoma campus. Awards are granted in May, and you have one year to complete your project; therefore, lead team members must be enrolled through spring quarter of the next academic year. The applicant(s) must be in good academic standing: minimum GPA of 2.5 for each undergraduate group member, and a minimum GPA of 3.0 for every graduate or professional group member, and can be of any discipline, major and class standing (including graduate and professional students).

Award Distribution and Accountability

Projects can request up to $5,000 (with an average award amount of $2,500). Awardees will be held accountable for their progress. Funds are distributed quarterly, and awardees will submit a progress report prior to receiving the funds, giving a summary of their achievements, lessons learned, etc.
