TWO $10,000 SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE; APPLY BY APRIL 18, 2018
The Lake Washington Schools Foundation is proud to announce a new partnership with the Lake Washington PTSA Council to give college-bound students even more opportunities for scholarships for the 2018/2019 academic year.
For many years now, the Lake Washington PTSA Council has awarded a variety of scholarships to graduating seniors. Funding for these scholarships is provided by the generosity of all PTSAs in the district, the continued support and success of Council’s Annual Scholarship Basket Auction, and donations from the greater community.
This year, through the generosity of private donors, the Lake Washington Schools Foundation is working with LWPTSA to offer two scholarships to students graduating from a LWSD high school and enrolling in a four-year college. Each scholarship is $10,000 ($2,500 per year). One scholarship will be awarded for Merit or Education and one for Perseverance or Turn-Around. All applicants applying for a PTSA Council scholarship are automatically considered for the LWSF scholarships, no additional application materials are necessary.
Now we know--you're a FAN of music arts! That's why you raised over $5,000 to purchase or repair musical instruments in our LWSD music programs!
