2013 Scholarships Available

2013 Scholarship GuideApplications 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.

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

REGIONAL IMPACT GRANT RECIPIENT

The Regional Impact Grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
