Ten UW Bioengineering undergraduates have received College of Engineering and Department of Bioengineering scholarships for the 2015-16 academic year.

Most scholarship award decisions were made on the basis of merit, and included factors such as academic record, research, leadership and personal statement. One scholarship considered financial need.

The 2015-16 year marks the inaugural award of the Allan S. Hoffman Endowed Scholarship. This endowed scholarship was established by UW Bioengineering Professor Emeritus Allan Hoffman, a globally recognized innovator in the field of biomaterials and controlled drug delivery.
