The GO-MAP Supporter Challenge
Your support of diversity in graduate education programs goes farther during Love Purple, Raise Gold!
In honor of the UW's 150th anniversary, Huskies far and wide are coming together for Love Purple, Raise Gold – a 48-hour online giving event with the goal of raising $150,000 between June 7 at 1:51 p.m. and June 9 at 1:50 p.m. The UW Graduate School is seizing Love Purple, Raise Gold to raise fellowship support for underrepresented minority students through a GO-MAP Supporter Challenge.
Make an online gift to the Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP) during Love Purple, Raise Gold and it will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Plus, through a special participation challenge, GO-MAP will receive an additional $1,500 if 150 donors make a gift of support during Love Purple, Raise Gold.
All proceeds from this GO-MAP Supporter Challenge will be awarded as a one-time fellowship to a GO-MAP student during the 2012-2013 academic year.
Supporting diversity in graduate education is a top priority for the UW Graduate School. Graduate students touch every aspect of the University community through their teaching, research, and service. Beyond the campus, our graduate alumni are solving society's biggest problems, enhancing our state's competitiveness, and keeping our communities livable. A diverse graduate student body is essential if we are to bring the diverse experiences, ideas and needs of Washington's communities into our classrooms, research programs, and community conversations.
Here's a sample of the difference GO-MAP students are making right now, thanks to generous donors like you:
- Researchers like Ed Ramos, Osa Igbinosun and Aomawa Shields chart new frontiers through research that enhances lives and opens the door to new opportunities.
- Students like Yaw Anokwa and Kari Watkins engage some of society's biggest problems through tenacious inquiry, collegial dialogue, and creativity.
- Individuals like Lisa Hoyt work magic in UW's classrooms – challenging and supporting their peers and UW undergraduates to learn, discover, and dream big.
Bring this special year to a triumphant close and make an investment in the future of graduate education at the UW by participating in the GO-MAP Challenge during Love Purple, Raise Gold June 7–9!
