Applications are now being accepted for Spring 2020.

Applications for Summer 2020 are not yet open – please check back later this winter.

We welcome applications from undergraduates, post-baccalaureates, graduate students and professionals from any institution worldwide. Applicants to FHL do not need to be currently enrolled at the University of Washington or any other university or college.

After the Application Due date, faculty will review all applications. Admission decisions are normally completed in 4-6 weeks and applicants will be notified by email. We cannot admit students until they have submitted all required application materials (see below). The Director of Friday Harbor Laboratories has final authority in admitting students.

Students may submit a financial aid request to FHL at the time of application but financial requests will not be considered until after admission decisions have been completed. This may require an additional 2-3 weeks and students will be notified in a separate email.  Learn more about Financial Aid.

The required application materials vary depending on the term for which a student is applying;  requirements are different for Spring and Autumn Quarters vs. Summer Courses.  In Spring and Autumn Quarters, requirements also vary for University of Washington (UW) matriculated students vs. non-UW students.

For Summer Courses, the required application materials are the same for all students (UW and non-UW).
