Community Foundation Now Accepting Applications for Scholarships

Deadline March 1st (for most scholarships)

NCW - The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting applications for its scholarship program.

The foundation manages over 100 unique scholarships that support 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.

Each scholarship has its own criteria and eligibility - most seek to support students who have served their communities, show growth and potential, and demonstrate significant financial need.

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 have scholarships for nearly every type of student,” said Julie Mott, the foundation’s scholarship program specialist.

“If you’re a student who has faced obstacles, or plan to study a specific area such as nursing or engineering, or have served your community or participated in extra-curricular activities – we most likely have a scholarship for you. Most of our scholarships support students who have a lot of potential and really need the extra financial support. We encourage every student who plans to attend college this fall to at least take the eligibility quiz and see if we have a scholarship that fits them."

The deadline for most scholarships is March 1st.
