Community Foundation of NCW Scholarship Applications Open January 1st

Steve Robinson presents the William and Elizabeth Robinson Scholarship, established in memory of his parents, to Hunter Brawley. Last year over a half million dollars in scholarships was awarded to 152 students in North Central Washington.

The Community Foundation of NCW will open applications for its scholarship program on January 1, 2018. The deadline for most scholarships is March 1. 

The Community Foundation manages over 100 unique scholarships established by individuals and families who feel passionate about furthering education for local students. 

Scholarship criteria varies and many do not require top academics or participation in specific activities. In fact, most scholarships seek to support students who have served their communities, show growth and potential, and demonstrate significant financial need. 

Scholarships are available to high school seniors, current college students, and non-traditional students from North Central Washington who are planning to attend four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, and trade schools. 

The application process is online and students can easily apply for multiple scholarships at once. The eligibility quiz feature helps students easily determine the scholarships that are right for them. 

“We encourage every student planning to attend college in the fall to apply for scholarships,” said Erika Orsulak, director of education programs. “The eligibility quiz will help students find scholarships, and there are scholarships for every type of student. Each year the Community Foundation has scholarships that don’t get awarded, simply because students don’t apply – all students should consider applying today.”

"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.”

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.
