Sixteen UW Bioengineering undergraduate students received Mary Gates Research Scholarships in Autumn 2014, out of a total 86 awards given.
Mary Gates Research Scholarships are competitive scholarships intended to enhance the educational experiences of undergraduate students at the University of Washington while they are engaged in research guided by faculty. By receiving research scholarships, students may focus more attention and time, deeping their inquiry into a discipline or project with a reduced financial burden.
Students receive research scholarships to pursue research in a variety of disciplines.
