First Year Programs

FIG CoRe Project & the Population Health Initiative

For the 3rd year, FIG students will have the opportunity to showcase their CoRe project to the broader UW community. This award is meant to reward the students who go above and beyond to work on the CoRe project.

  • Students will vote in their GEN ST 199 section on their favorite CoRe Project to represent their FIG. The top CoRe project from each FIG will be entered to be selected as the Top 20 FIG CoRe Awards for 2023. Each group member from the Top 20 groups will receive a $25 award. 
  • This is a great opportunity for students looking for resume-boosting activities and wanting to implement an interdisciplinary approach to their future careers utilizing knowledge of population health.
