Ellis Civic Fellowship

The Ellis Civic Fellowship identifies two students from each incoming class who are committed to serving the community and investing in their own leadership development during their time at the UW!

If selected as an Ellis Fellow, you will receive a scholarship (totaling $12,000 over four years), personalized advising, supported connections with community engaged projects, and opportunities to develop as a civic leader.

The Fellowship is open to students interested in any major of study, as long as you agree to make Public Service, Community Engagement, and Civic Leadership Development key aspects of your time at the UW. Ellis Fellows explore a variety of local non-profit organizations and work with campus and community mentors to develop themselves as civic leaders. This hands-on learning helps you gain experience to prepare you for life beyond college!
