Community Foundation Accepting Applications for Scholarships

The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting scholarship applications for students who plan to attend community college, university, or trade school in Fall 2020.

Over 100 scholarships are available to high school seniors, current college students, and non-traditional students, each with unique criteria and award amounts. Most scholarships seek to support students who have served their community, show growth and potential, and demonstrate financial need.

Applications must be submitted online. An eligibility quiz helps students determine the scholarships for which they are eligible to apply. The online process also allows students to apply for multiple scholarships at one time.

Application deadline for most scholarships is March 1st. Students may need FAFSA or other financial information to complete the application, as well as letters of recommendations from teachers and mentors, SAT scores (for some), and school transcripts, so proper planning is highly recommended.

“All of our scholarships have been established by people in our region who care about helping local students achieve their education dreams” said Julie Mott, scholarship program specialist. “Each was created with a certain student in mind, so there is really something for everyone. We encourage anyone who plans on going to college or trade school this fall to apply.”

Last year, over a $660,000 in scholarships was awarded to students across North Central Washington.

"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.
