The University of Washington Bonderman Fellowship will run a limited selection process in the 2022-2023 academic year. University of Washington graduate and professional students* from the Seattle, Tacoma, and Bothell campuses who meet the eligibility criteria will be able to apply, with the application opening in early February. University of Washington undergraduate students will not be eligible to apply for the Bonderman Fellowship during this cycle (please see here for additional information about this decision).

*Professional students include those in Law (JD), Medicine (MD), Dentistry (DDS), and Pharmacy (PharmD) degree programs.

Each year since 1995 a small group of University of Washington students have been provided a rare opportunity to independently travel the world as Bonderman Fellows. David Bonderman, a UW alumnus, created the Bonderman Fellowship at UW, which has funded life-changing global journeys for more than 300 UW students, allowing them to engage deeply with peoples and communities across the world.
