Each year, the college Foundation provides scholarships and emergency grants for many students. Scholarship criteria vary; some are for specific areas of study or for those with specific backgrounds or needs.
Applicants will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible. All required materials must be included in an application packet. Students qualify for and may receive funds from multiple scholarships, but only need to submit one application.
Students may only apply for the Foundation’s Complete the Dream Scholarship during their last or graduation quarter. You must also have experienced a significant financial, medical, or family loss that has required you to drop your classes and therefore not graduate. The Complete the Dream Scholarship funds are available to help students through tough times and enable them to graduate despite a personal crisis.
Scholarship Tips From Current Students
- Maintain a good grade point average.
- Participate in clubs and activities.
- Volunteer on campus or in the community.
|“Being an international student has been a great financial challenge for me. With the Merit Scholarship, I can save money for my textbooks next quarter. It will relieve my stress about financial difficulties. I think students should be active in searching for scholarships and work hard on their schooling. Thanks to this support, I can focus more on my study and participate in college activities!”|
"I received the ISS Merit Scholarship. This scholarship will help me and my parents pay my tuition and living costs. Also, it helps adorn my resume because I can put it as an award!"
|“My major is environmental engineering. My scholarship gave me a chance to take additional courses that I was interested in and I really appreciate that opportunity. I hope there will be more students who can benefit from the ISS scholarship. I will transfer to a university after I finish my courses in Edmonds Community College.”|
|“Hi, my name is Glo and I'm pursuing my AA degree in Business Management. My dad was the one who inspired me to study marketing; I plan to be a Marketing Analyst someday. The merit scholarship that I earned from International Student Services has helped me with my tuition and my confidence. My goal is to transfer to a commerce school next year.”|
|“I have received three College Merit Scholarships and an Edmonds CC Foundation Scholarship over the last two years. They helped me greatly to finish my Associate of Business Degree. It is simple to apply and also a great honor to be a part of the celebration. As as international student, those scholarships pushed me to get better grades. I feel like I am getting closer to my dream. It's such a nice opportunity that the college actually celebrates your hard work and appreciates it. Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity. I appreciate all of the support I have received from Edmonds CC.”|
