Community Foundation Awards $447,875 in Scholarships to Students in NCW

The Community Foundation of NCW has awarded $447,875 in scholarships to 136 students from communities across North Central Washington.

The foundation received 1,229 scholarship applications from students across the region planning to enter college this fall or continue their education. Over 200 scholarships committee volunteers reviewed applications and determined finalists for the awards.

“Our donors establish scholarship funds because they are passionate about helping to create the best future for our local kids” said Beth Stipe, executive director of the foundation.

“We see so many students whose parents work hard to take care of their families, but can’t afford to help with college – especially with the cost of tuition and books these days. Many kids wouldn’t be able to continue their education without this type of financial support from generous donors in our community.”

The Community Foundation manages over 90 scholarships that help ease the financial burden of college for many types of students. While criteria varies, most scholarships are seeking to support students who have worked hard, have great potential, and significant financial need.

Community Foundation scholarships are offered annually. The next application opens January 1, 2017. Scholarships have various deadlines, however most of them are due March 1st.

"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.”

Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service.

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.
