|Student Research||Scholarships||Postdoc SEED Fellowships|
The Applied Physics Laboratory welcomes graduate and undergraduate student reseachers, supporting them through individual grants and contracts of APL-UW scientists and engineers.
Graduate students are matched with skilled researchers for leadership roles in field and lab programs.
Undergraduates are integrated directly into their APL-UW advisor’s research projects, serve as co-authors of research articles in peer-reviewed journals, and present research results at national and international scientific conferences.
To work with an APL-UW scientist or engineer, you must:
Undergraduate and graduate scholarships are available to students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
Recent scholarship awardees:
2013 Boeing Scholar
2012 Boeing Scholar
Stephanie Chu – Bioengineering
2012 Hardisty Scholar
Ameen Tabatabai – Bioengineering

APL-UW seeks postdoctoral researchers. The Laboratory provides two fellowships per year; each is funded for 2 years. Applicants for the felowships will have research interests aligned with APL-UW areas of expertise: polar science, ocean physics, air-sea interaction and remote sensing, or ocean engineering. Fellows will define their own research programs in conjunction with an APL-UW principal investigator mentor. Successful postdoc fellows will be motivated and prepared to pursue independent research funding at the end of the 2-year fellowship period.
Interested candidates should contact:
APL-UW-Hosted Seminars: Join us in the Hardisty Conference Center on Thursday afternoons for public seminars during the academic year.
From Invention to Start-Up (FITS) Seminars: Check out this multimedia archive series to explore how to commercialize your invention or innovation.
Educational opportunities are available for K-12 students and educators. APL-UW scientists and engineers visit classrooms and give lab tours.
We partner with UW in several ongoing initiatives:
The public learns all about polar research through face-to-face interactions with APL-UW researchers during the Polar Science Weekend at Seattle's Pacific Science Center each spring.
The University of Washington ROV team is a student-founded club, mentored by APL-UW researchers, with the goal of designing, building, and operating an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV).
