Applications are now open for the 2023-24 Latinx Scholars Graduate School Fellowship (LSGF). LSGF awards are hosted by the Office of Graduate Student Equity & Excellence (GSEE) (formerly GO-MAP). In 2013, a group of engaged, committed UW faculty, civic, and business leaders joined together to establish the Latinx Scholars Graduate School Fellowship to provide financial assistance to UW graduate students (master’s and doctoral) who have a demonstrated commitment to Latinx communities. GSEE appreciates the community members that have continued to give to this important fund.
