Scholarships for Students

More than 45 percent of the students at Edmonds Community College need financial assistance to attend. Some must work while attending school to support their family, others are laid off employees updating their job skills, and many are recent high school graduates who are eager to continue their education.

Each year, the Foundation awards more than 150 scholarships to help these students succeed.

Bachelor of Applied Science Scholarship 

Three scholarships in the amount of $2,150 each will be given to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Applied Science in Child, Youth, and Family Services. The application will open in June 2018. 

Annual Awards

The Foundation awards over 40 scholarships to Edmonds Community College students once each year for tuition, books and fees for the next school year. The amounts and number awarded vary from year to year based on available funding. Typical awards range from $1,000-$4,500.

All students with a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher who plan to attend Edmonds Community College in the upcoming academic year are eligible to apply, excluding students who will be in Running Start for the duration of the upcoming academic year. The application typically opens in winter quarter and is due in spring quarter.

The application for the 2019-20 academic year will open February 4, 2019.

Complete the Dream

The Foundation also funds a scholarship for students who are in their last quarter and need financial assistance to graduate or complete their program/certificate. This scholarship was established to help students who have encountered a recent (occurring in the last 3 months) unexpected and unforeseeable financial hardship that makes it impossible for them to graduate.

Hernandez-Foy Second Chance Endowed Scholarship

This scholarship recognizes the courage and fortitude demonstrated by those individuals who have lost everything but continue to strive toward a better life. In offering this award, Dr. Hernandez and Mrs. Foy wish to provide encouragement and a "second chance" to students with histories of incarceration or homelessness. The scholarship is intended to help provide an opportunity for these students to experience the transformative benefits of higher education. The donors hope that in receiving the award, students will in turn be inspired to pay it forward and help others to achieve their aspirations as well.
