The Snohomish Education Foundation announced through fundraising and community donations, it has awarded 181 community scholarships totaling more than $181,000 to graduating seniors from AIM, Glacier Peak, and Snohomish High Schools. 

“It is always a privilege and a pleasure to be part of a community scholarship program that supports our Snohomish School District Seniors on their way to bright futures. This year, we navigated through a unique set of circumstances, from deep snow school closures through the many challenges stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. Our brand new on-line application and selection process through WashBoard made continuing on with the program possible, and I applaud the Snohomish community for adapting so quickly to this new format and committing so generously to student scholarship funding for the Class of 2020. Our focus is forward, with hope and encouragement, and we wish our graduates all the best as they go on to become our future leaders,” said Carol Robinson, SEF Board member and Scholarship Committee Chair.

Since 1996, the Snohomish Education Foundation has awarded over $2,394,000 in scholarships to 2,806 Snohomish School District graduates. In 2020, the Foundation added seven new scholarships; Alex Hopkins Memorial Scholarship, Betsy Ford DECA Scholarship, Foley-Bartelt Memorial Scholarship, George W. Nowadnick Leadership & Service Scholarship, Jane Steranka Math Tutor Scholarship, L. S. Bickford Memorial Scholarship, and Remembering Vicki Osotio 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 grants, 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 Snohomish School District students. For more information, visit

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.
