Everyone deserves education to thrive today. That’s why we founded the UW Certificate Scholarship fund: to give people who otherwise couldn’t afford it the chance to boost their careers with a UW certificate.
And you can help.
turn possibility into reality
Through UW Professional & Continuing Education certificate programs, we help thousands of busy adults every year build the skills they need to advance their careers, launch new ones and achieve dreams that were previously out of reach. We help turn possibility into reality.
With your support, we can make education a reality for even more students.
Your contribution to the UW Certificate Scholarship Fund will help break down barriers to education and will make it possible for people here in our community to build a brighter future.
Give the gift of learning today.
