Dear Outreach Supporters
The University of Washington (UW) Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity cordially invites your students to participate in the Annual Native American Student Day(NASD) Conference. NASD will be held at the University of Washington-Seattle Campus on Friday, November 2nd, 2012.
Native American Student Day is a FREE one-day conference for American Indian/Alaska Native high school seniors who are interested in attending the University of Washington-Seattle. NASD was created to encourage American Indian/Alaska Native students to pursue higher education, as well as give them a closer view of the UW through the eyes of academic excellence and diversity enhancement. Participants will have the opportunity to meet future classmates, learn about campus programs, and discover the diversity and unity that exists within the UW community. They will participate in writing and application workshops, cultural activities and get a chance to experience life as a future Husky!
We ask that you inform students (as well as counselors/teachers/advisors) of this wonderful opportunity to experience the UW. Please encourage your students to respond as soon as possible, as participation in this conference will be based on a “first-come, first-serve” eligibility and availability basis. We will cover lodging costs for students travelling from over 50+ miles away. We will also cover lodging for up to TWO chaperones driving the students. Additional chaperones will need to cover own lodging expenses. Please note that priority will be given to students with a 2.5 or higher GPA. The application is available online, and due no later than Monday, October 22, 2012.
