A number of organizations and businesses are offering scholarships to Whatcom County students.
I’ve listed a few below.
People have until Thursday, March 15, to nominate young volunteers, ages 6 through 18, for their contributions to their communities as part of the Kohl’s Cares Scholarship Program.
Kohl’s will award more than 2,200 kids with over $440,000 in scholarships and prizes this year.
Assistance League of Bellingham has scholarships for students in grades 6 through 11 who want to take summer enrichment programs such as art, debate, drama, journalism, leadership, math, music, science and technology.
The scholarships are for students in public school, or home-schooled students with a public school affiliation.
More than $33,000 in scholarships was awarded to 53 students last year.
Application deadline is 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 11. Click here for more details.
The Sisu Children’s Fund of Bellingham is offering a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating high school senior in Whatcom County or Skagit County for continuing education, including beauty school.
The fund also is providing a $2,500 scholarship to a student attending Bellingham Technical College.
Application deadline for both is Monday, April 30.
The scholarships are open to students who have, or have had, a medical problem or physical disability.
Applications are available by clicking here, calling 360-671-8766, or emailing email@example.com.
A couple of caveats. The form may still have last year’s deadline, and it’s OK for students to use the same form for either scholarship.
