High School Students, BEFORE YOU START read these important specific instructions that will help you qualify for Whatcom Dollars for Scholars scholarships.  


The 2020 Scholarship Round for graduating high school seniors from Whatcom County is now closed.  While we were planning to notify scholarship applicants of the Award Committee decisions by mid-April, with the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, there may be a slight delay.  We thank you for your patience and will notify students of awards decisions as soon as we possibly can. 

Neighboring matters, especially in a time of crisis. 

In times like these when there is a challenging public health situation and we're all wrestling with uncertainty, remembering that we're all in this together can be difficult. And we know that in addressing COVID-19, we are only as safe as those most at risk. It's essential that we rely on trustworthy information so that we can make the best decisions for ourselves, our families, our businesses/organizations and our communities.  CLICK HERE to learn more about how you can help.
