Winter Resources & Opportunities (Volume 5) Husky Pawket Guide

Husky Pawket Guide From the Desk of Dr. Denzil Suite, UW Division of Student Life


Hello Huskies,

Do you have an innovative idea that would enhance the UW student experience? Created by students for students, the Husky Seed Fund provides up to $5,000 for you, or a small team, to pursue your passions and bring your projects to life.

The 2023 awardees were:

  • Pathways for All Huskies: illuminating campus pathways everyone can navigate.
  • Huskies’ Precious Plastics: transforming waste plastics into usable items.
  • Eat Together: connecting students through meals together.

I encourage you to consider applying to the Husky Seed Fund (applications are due by Mar. 26).
