Marjorie M and William H Griffin SCHOLARSHIP

The Marjorie M. and William H. Griffin Scholarship Fund was established in January 2017 to help those who would otherwise be unable to afford college or other higher education. The Griffins are particularly interested in assisting non-traditional students returning to school after time in the workforce or raising children. The funding is available for any accredited educational program in Washington State.

Application Opens: January 1st
Application Due Date: March 1st

Eligibility:
  1. Non-traditional student returning to school after time in the workforce or raising children
  2. Minimum 2.5 GPA
  3. Plans to enroll in any higher education program within Washington State
  4. Demonstrated willingness to work to support oneself
  5. Preference is given to those students participating in musical programs (through school, college, or community programs)

Note: This scholarship is paid over multiple years. In the case of multi-year scholarships, future payment requires an update showing educational progress and a successful academic year to keep the scholarship in place.

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.
