WENATCHEE - The Community Foundation of North-Central Washington has awarded $408,348 to 137 high school and college students from Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties. It is the largest distribution of scholarship awards from the foundation to date.
Scholarship criteria are varied and established by the donor. Some focus on specific subjects, schools, or geographic location, while others focus on leadership, academic achievement or progress, first generation, or those that simply need financial assistance in order to attend college or university.
This year, 191 community volunteers served on selection committees that determined the final award recipients.
Award recipients, representing high schools and colleges across North-Central Washington, are:
