Eligible applicants must live or attend school in Des Moines or Normandy Park, WA.

This is a unique opportunity to apply for 10-16 scholarships with just one application.

Grants range from $500- $1,000 per scholarship.

Scholarships can be utilized at two-year, four-year, or vocational and technical colleges. Students graduating from high school (or who have earned their GED) and adults continuing their education should consider applying.
