Edmonds Chamber Foundation establishes EdCC scholarship for 2018-19

Feb 14, 2018

The Edmonds Chamber Foundation has established an Edmonds Community College Foundation annual scholarship to provide financial assistance to students pursuing a health care, humanities/arts, or business degree.

More than $500 was raised at the chamber’s annual report meeting Jan. 26 at the Edmonds Yacht Club.

“Our hope is that a local resident will be able to further their education and bring those skills, learned at Edmonds Community College, back into our community to improve the quality of life for all residents,” said Lillyan Hendershot, president of the Edmonds Chamber Foundation and owner of The Branding Iron in Edmonds.

The funding of the Edmonds CC scholarship is in keeping with the foundation’s mission to support the economic, recreational and educational interests of the Edmonds area business community and its citizens.

The $4,500 scholarship will cover an Edmonds CC student’s tuition, fees and books for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The scholarship recipient will be chosen by a committee comprised of foundation board members, employees, volunteers and Edmonds CC foundation employees.

Recipients must demonstrate financial need, have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher, and live within the Edmonds School District or be a graduate of an Edmonds School District high school, and must also be pursuing a degree in health care, humanities/arts or business.

The Edmonds CC Foundation annual scholarship application opens Feb. 22. The deadline is March 19, and scholarship recipients will be notified in May.
