BECOME A SCHOLARSHIP VOLUNTEER!

Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity that will change the lives of students in our region? Become a Scholarship Review Volunteer!

The Community Foundation of NCW has over 130 scholarships, each with its unique set of criteria, to financially support students entering college, university, and trade schools.

Each scholarship has a review committee that reads each application and together determines the final recipient. Some scholarship committees include the donor and/or their family, but by law they may not make up more than half of the committee.

We are always in need of volunteers who are willing to spend the time and thoughtful care on determining award recipients.

The commitment:

  • Must be available between one of the following three periods March 5–April 5, April 5–May 5, or June 5–June 25, review and score scholarship applications (anywhere from 10-150, depending on the scholarship) as part of a committee.
  • Must be willing to read and score applications through our online system (there will be training). This will allow you to review the scholarships from the comfort of your own home at your own pace.
  • Must sign a Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest Forms.

For questions about becoming a scholarship review volunteer, please contact Julie Mott at julie@cfncw.org or (509) 663-7716.

Scholarship Recipient

"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.
