2013 Scholarships Available
Applications are now open for nearly 70 scholarships from the Community Foundation of North Central Washington. Scholarships vary in criteria and intent and are available to high school and college students in Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties. Application deadline is February 15, 2013 (unless otherwise indicated in scholarship description). Awards are distributed for students planning to attend college or university in the fall of 2013.
Each Community Foundation scholarship is unique, with varying GPA and extra-curricular requirements. Many of the Community Foundation scholarships seek to assist students that may have struggled, but express intent to work hard to achieve their educational goals and dreams.
Community Foundation scholarships are created for many reasons – in memory of a loved one, to honor a special skill or field, or to provide assistance to those who need it most. Scholarship funds at the Community Foundation are established during a lifetime or are a fulfillment of one’s will. They are invested and grow over time so they can be offered to students for years to come.
In 2012, the Community Foundation of NCW awarded over $341,000 to 260 students now attending college or university.
