Everett Community College Scholarships-Apply Today
Search and Apply for Scholarships at theWashBoard.org. The Local Scholarship Program (LSP) scholarships through the Snohomish Education Foundation (SEF) will be posted to the Washboard beginning February 1st. See Derek for more info.
Private scholarships are one tool to help make college or training after high school more affordable. Businesses, organizations, and colleges award scholarships to students for community service, good grades, athletic ability, or a variety of other qualities or activities.
Students in Washington can create a profile on the WashBoard.org to be matched with potential scholarship opportunities. The site is spam-free and will never sell your information.
This Winter, our Local Scholarship Program (in partnership with the Snohomish Education Foundation) will post several scholarships available exclusively to Snohomish School District students. This is another reason to register on this specific platform.
If you have questions about scholarship opportunities, you are encouraged to contact Derek in-person, via email or phone.
Please join the AIM Counseling, Career Center & Scholarships Canvas course. Here you will find valuable information on several helpful topics, including: Local Resources (Clothing/Food & More), Mental Health, College, Scholarships, Internships, Apprenticeships & Jobs. I plan to continually add to this throughout the year.
You can join by clicking here: https://sno.instructure.com/enroll/WMLEFW
Note: This is not a course with assignments or additional work. It is a voluntary resource for you.
I look forward to connecting with you.
