The Snohomish Education Foundation announced through fundraising and community donations from local organizations, businesses, and individuals has awarded 207 community scholarships totaling more than $203,000 to graduating seniors from AIM, Glacier Peak, and Snohomish High Schools. 

“For the last two years, our schools have operated differently, yet, through all the changes and challenges of these last two years, our schools’ focus has remained on preparing students to be successful at the next level – be that the next grade or for life and success after high school. The Snohomish Education Foundation has maintained its mission to support students, families and staff in our schools. Scholarships are one part of our work. With the help of community sponsors, donors and volunteers, it is an investment in these students’ futures and in the futures of each of us. Congratulations to these students and their families; thanks to the sponsors making the scholarships possible, and thank you to each school staff person who helped inspire these students to aspire to more learning,” said Robin Stefanson, SEF Board member and Scholarship Committee Chair.

Since 1990, the Snohomish Education Foundation has awarded over $2,779,000 in scholarships to 3,200 Snohomish School District graduates. 

In 2022, the Foundation added five new scholarships; Arts of Snohomish Scholarship, ATS STEM/Trades Scholarship, Future Service Providers of Washington Scholarship, Smoots Family Scholarship, and the William C. Hutton Scholarship. The Foundation invites donations to existing scholarships or to establish new scholarships in honor of, a memorial, or by an organization, family, or alumni group.

The Snohomish Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting student success through scholarships, classroom grants, district programs, and the Hansen Shoe Fund. As a community-based organization, the Foundation relies on private donors and volunteers to carry out their mission of fostering learning by expanding opportunities for all students in the Snohomish School District.

Learn how you can help fund college dreams

Scholarships are tax deductible donations and assist students with costs associated with higher education. These scholarships are easy to start and rewarding to give. We encourage all of our scholarship sponsors to provide eligibility standards and/or participate in hand selecting their recipient(s). Each spring we hold a special ceremony to celebrate student accomplishments and invite sponsors to meet their recipients. Here are a few reasons that scholarships are an ideal giving opportunity.

  • Local businesses may choose to award scholarships for a variety of reasons: to encourage study in their chosen field, increase their pool of qualified employees, or provide a community service.
  • Service organizations award scholarships each year that encourage volunteerism within the community and reward students for good citizenship.
  • Scholarships in the name of a family or in honor of a loved one. Scholarships are an incredible way to leave a legacy for a person or an entity.

The Snohomish Education Foundation not only provides administrative support, it also awards several thousand dollars in funds each year to students. The Foundation can also assist with the creation and maintenance of endowments. Endowments are principal investments that self fund awards through earnings. Contact us today at 360.568.5292 or to find out how you can sponsor your own scholarship and make a young person’s college dreams a reality, or to donate to this worthwhile Foundation.
