Jim Sinegal Graduate & Professional Fellowship

The James Sinegal Graduate & Professional Fellowship honors Jim Sinegal and his commitment to educational access and equity. The Sinegal Fellowship provides support for underrepresented minority Costco Scholars who have graduated from either the University of Washington or Seattle University and who are pursuing an advanced degree at Seattle University.

• Students who will be enrolled full-time in master’s, doctoral or professional degree programs at Seattle University for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years.
• Students who were undergraduate Costco Scholars at either the University of Washington or Seattle University.
• Students with demonstrated financial need. Determination of financial need will be based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid {FAFSA) or other institutional methods as evaluated by Seattle University’s Student Financial Services Office.

Sinegal Fellowship recipients are expected to remain in good academic standing. In addition, recipients will be expected to help SU acknowledge donors who contribute to the award by participating in stewardship activities which will include:
• Promptly completing a thank you letter at the request of the Donor Relations Office at SU.
• Attending the annual Costco Scholarship Fund Breakfast (September)
• Serving as a mentor for undergraduate Costco Scholars by participating in various programs (Student Orientation, Costco &
You, etc) as requested by the Office of Multicultural Affairs.
