How to Fill Out This Form
To be considered for IslandWood aid, please fill out the following form or email materials directly to the EEC Program Scholarship Committee (eec@islandwood.org). 

We recommend submitting a financial aid application within two weeks of applying to the program so awards will be known when considering an admission offer.  
Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis with notification within four weeks of receipt of a completed application.

Complete only the sections for which you are eligible.  Awards are only valid for the academic year in which you apply.


Other Aid Available to IslandWood Graduate Students
In addition to IslandWood-supported aid, EEC students are also eligible to apply for UW College of Education Scholarships and federal aid through UW's Office of Student Financial Aid.  


Our Commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI)

IslandWood encourages a diverse group of applicants because we believe having graduate students that authentically reflect the students and communities we serve is critical to our ability to be culturally responsive.

We provide equal opportunities to all applicants for admission, and welcome applications from qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, pregnancy, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws.

We approach financial aid through both an equality and an equity lens. For us, equality-based aid means providing all enrolled students with a monthly stipend to help cover basic living expenses. Equity-based aid means that students who demonstrate financial need, as well as those from nondominant communities that have been historically underrepresented in the environmental and education fields, are eligible for additional scholarships.
