NUW scholars orientation week begins September 6th and runs through September 9th 2022. Scholars will meet at Willow Hall for check-in between 1-2pm on Tuesday September 6th.
Orientation week schedule coming soon!
Over the course of the school year the NUW Scholars will gather weekly for presentations, workshops, community building, and field trips. The activities will range from informative presentations on scholarships and financial aid to visits to nearby Native spaces including Daybreak Star, the Duwamish Longhouse, and the Suquamish Museum. There will also be beading classes, drum making and other cultural activities planned throughout the year. Most importantly, NUW Scholars is a community of support for you in your first year at UW.
NUW Scholars brings together Native and Indigenous students, staff and faculty! We are here to help you connect and build community. You will get to know students, staff, and faculty from American Indian Studies and other departments across campus. We are particularly excited about helping you explore the fields you are interested in and connecting you with mentors in those departments.
Once a month our Native community will gather for “Our Indigenous Family Lunches” at wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ -the Intellectual House for an informal lunch where students, staff and faculty can meet and enjoy lunch together.
