The William H. Gates Public Service Law Program

The University of Washington School of Law is proud to announce the William H. Gates Public Service Law Program. Created in honor of William H. Gates Sr., a prominent Washington state attorney and public servant, this program awards five scholarships on an annual basis to first year students entering the UW School of Law J.D. program. Each Gates PSL scholarship award will cover tuition, books, other normal fees imposed for University and UW School of Law enrollment, costs of room and board and incidental expenses. Acceptance of a Gates PSL scholarship represents a commitment on the part of each recipient ("Scholar") to work in public service for five years following graduation.

The presence of this Program at the UW School of Law cements our institution’s commitment to public service and enhances the experience of the entire law school and university community.
