This Scholarship Advising Internship is an outstanding opportunity for a graduate student to learn more about scholarship advising within higher education. The intern will work with the Director and Assistant Director at UW Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards (OMSFA) and engage in the day-to-day processes of professional scholarship advising.  

 The intern will have the chance to learn how to support students through the intense process of applying for scholarships via advising and individual feedback, and by helping them build competitive scholarship applications. The intern will also learn how we collaborate across UW to identify and support potential student scholars, and how to intentionally diversify the applicant and nominee pools. 

 We are a small but engaged and fun team – join us to learn the ins and outs of scholarship advising! More details are attached to this email, but please note that the internship is available for Summer 2023 through Winter 2024 (exact dates can be flexible), and we anticipate the intern working 12-15 hours per week (compensation is $18.69 per hour).
