Where Do My Donations Go?

At the present time, SPI offers meritorius tuition support as our funds allow. This maximizes the attendance of gifted students. Last year each Session I student received some tuition support. SPI’s ultimate goal is to offer full support to all Session I students. Your donation will help us achieve this benchmark.

Other areas that benefit from your support include Honoraria for:

Visiting faculty, who offer master classes
UW faculty who present lectures and seminars

All SPI events are open to the public, and you are invited to observe and enjoy all activities.
