Private Scholarships

You must be registered for classes for the current quarter before any funds can be released to your account. Any funds in excess of account charges will be released to you. If sponsors wish to have excess funds returned to them, they will need to collect the money directly from you. If you are not registered for the current quarter, the funds may be applied to a future quarter.

Funds will always be applied to your account according to the sponsor’s wishes. However, if no instructions are provided by the sponsor, all checks for $5000 or more will be split over the remaining quarters in the academic year. Checks for less than $5000 will be applied to the current quarter.

If you will not be attending the University of Washington, the sponsor may request a refund from Student Fiscal Services.

If you are registered only for UW extension classes, scholarship funds cannot be released to pay your tuition or to print you a check. Check with UW Extension for payment instructions.

Note: The University Bookstore is not part of the University of Washington and charges for books are not included in University charges.

ACH/Wire Payments

If would like to pay by wire transfer please contact sfshelp@uw.edu to obtain the banking information. Please ensure that you include the UW student’s full name, student number, and invoice (if applicable) in the wire. For International students and sponsors, we recommend peerTransfer as a more reliable method to make your payment. Use the peerTransfer widget at the bottom of our Tuition Payment page.

Scholarship Checks

If your sponsor is paying by check, the check must be made payable to the University of Washington. The check must be drawn on a U.S. Bank and payable in U.S. dollars.

If the sponsor requires that the check be made payable to both you and the University of Washington, the sponsor should mail the check directly to you for endorsement. After endorsing the check, mail or bring the check to the Student Fiscal Services Office.

Scholarship checks should be mailed to:

University of Washington - Scholarships
PO Box 24967
Seattle, WA 98124-1967

Please have the sponsor include the following information with the check:

  • Student name
  • UW student number or social security number
  • Quarter or academic year that the payment covers
  • Sponsor’s full address, including fax and email address if available
