Foundation Scholarships

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.

Complete the Dream Scholarship

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.

"I have received an ISS College Merit Scholarship and an Edmonds CC Foundation Scholarship. Thanks to Edmonds CC financial aid, I am both proud of myself and happy to be closer to my dream. For most international students, our tuition and book fees can be a burden. Students study harder with the help of scholarships, and it is a good memory to have in our time here. Thank you ISS for having a program that supports international students."
