The North Thurston Education Foundation offers scholarships to graduating seniors to assist in financing their post-high school education in the 2019-20 school year.

Scholarships are awarded for those ‘who will be’ attending community colleges, vocational or technical schools or colleges or universities.
In addition to graduating from a North Thurston Public School, applicants must have demonstrated
(1) The skills necessary to succeed in their chosen post-secondary school.
(2) Good citizenship and leadership qualities.
(3) A need for financial assistance to meet their educational goals.
Foundation scholarships vary in amounts awarded but the total value of each scholarship is no less than $2,000. Most scholarships are one-year grants, but some are renewable for either two or four years based on the recipient’s academic progress.
* The Foundation awards the following scholarships, many in memory of important individuals who served our community.
