Seattle Colleges Foundation Scholarships

The 2022-23 scholarship application is closed!

Don’t miss your chance at sharing in the million+ dollars in scholarship funding available this year. Even if your other aid will cover costs like tuition, fees and books, there’s more to getting through college. A scholarship from the Seattle Colleges Foundation could help you with  housingfoodtransportationchildcare — any educational expense associated with succeeding in school.

If you work, a scholarship could help you work less. It’s well established that students with jobs of more than 15 hours a week struggle to keep their grades up and are at greater risk of dropping out.

So apply! Most scholarships range between $3,500 and $4,500 for the year. Students of almost every kind are eligible, provided they’ll be attending a Seattle College — North, Central or South — in the upcoming 2022-23 academic year:

  • Incoming and current students
  • Associate's, B.A.S. and B.S. students
  • International students
  • Dreamers
  • Running Start students who will be graduating from high school this year
  • Students planning to transfer

Here’s a preview of what you’ll need to do:

  1. Complete the FAFSA or WASFA. This is a requirement, because if you don’t, you’re likely leaving money on the table. (Exceptions to this rule described here in our FAQ’s.)
  1. Identify two people who will reference for you. One needs to be an instructor or staff member at the Seattle Colleges. They’ll each fill out a short online form.
  1. Fill out your part of the application, including a couple of short essays describing your goals and how a scholarship will help.

The process is competitive, but with a million dollars to distribute, if you submit a strong application, your chances are good.
