Native Daughters of Washington Territorial Pioneers SCHOLARSHIP

Founded in 1937, the Native Daughters of Washington Territorial Pioneers, set out to collect historical stories from pioneering women to share with their communities.  For the last, almost century, this women’s group has been interviewing, researching and collaborating to preserve the rich history of our local pioneers dating back to 1890.  From this dedicated work of generations, a book titled Pioneer Dreams was written, published and a copy now sits in the Library of Congress for others to learn from and enjoy.  Today the group mostly shares their stories with nursing homes and the Wenatchee Valley Museum, lending their knowledge especially during the museum’s cultural festival.  This scholarship was set up with the idea of looking ahead at what lies ahead for the community and providing financial aid to those students who have been accepted into Wenatchee Valley College’s RN, BSN or CNA program.

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

Eligibility:
  1. Must be accepted into Wenatchee Valley College’s RN, BSN or CNA program
  2. Demonstrate financial need

"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.”

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.
