Marsden Scholarship – 3/31/2018

  • Marsden Scholarships are intended primarily for high school graduates who demonstrate a distinct promise of academic excellence pursuing a baccalaureate degree on a full-time basis, to help them attend higher-rated colleges or universities which might be too costly without the scholarship.To be eligible, the applicant must have a permanent legal residence within the Episcopal Diocese of Spokane (the state of Washington east of the Cascade Mountains or the state of Idaho north of the Salmon River), but religious affiliation is not required.

    Up to two (2) new scholarships of $7,500 are awarded each year, based primarily on potential for academic excellence in any field of study. Grades, test scores, other indicia of potential for academic excellence, and the financial impact of a scholarship on applicant’s plans are all considered in a “total picture” of each application, so minimums are not set here. For reference, successful applicants on average have cumulative GPA above 3.5 and combined math/reading SAT scores above 1300, or other compelling evidence of potential for academic excellence. New awards are usually made to students entering college as freshmen but occasionally to those already in college. And sometimes special awards are made for graduate studies.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider’s website.

The Sub Pop Loser Scholarship – 3/21/2018

The Sub Pop Loser Scholarship is back for our 10th year (!) of supporting Losers in Washington and Oregon.

Sub Pop Records in Seattle, WA is offering a grand total of $15,000 worth of college scholarship money to three eligible high school seniors. There are three scholarships—one for $7,000, one for $5,000 and one for $3,000. As longtime and proud losers ourselves, we’re exceedingly happy to be able, in some small way, to help further the education of art-enthused misfits from the NW.

Applicants must be a resident of Washington or Oregon, and a graduating senior on your way to full-time enrollment at an accredited university or college. We are looking for applicants who are involved and/or interested in music and/or the creative arts in some way. However, you do not need to be pursuing an education in the arts.

To apply you must submit an essay, one page or less, using any combination of the following questions as a guide (or write something completely your own, be inspired and creative!). Please list the school you are graduating from and the school you plan to attend in the fall at the top of your essay along with your contact information.

– What are you doing in the arts/music field in your community?

– What does being a Sub Pop ‘Loser’ mean to you?

– What are your influences and/or who inspired you to become involved in the arts?

– Describe your biggest failure and explain how it has brought you closer to your goal(s).

– Discuss a special attribute or accomplishment that sets you apart.

– How has your family or community background affected the way you see the world?

– Why should you be the Loser winner?

Applicants are strongly (!) encouraged to send digital links and/or provide hard copies of their artwork, photos of community involvement, radio show links, videos, etc. along with their essay (we have never had a winner who submitted only an essay w/no extras). However, please be aware that Sub Pop will not return any of this material, so please don’t send originals. Sub Pop will give equal opportunity to all applicants who fit the criteria outlined above.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday, March 21st.

Please send all submissions and attachments to scholarship@subpop.com by Wednesday, March 21st. We will announce the scholarship winners during the first week of April.

Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship and Emergency Grant Programs – Veterans and Spouses Only – 2/28/2018

The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship and Emergency Grant Programs

Scholarship America and Wells Fargo are pleased to announce the launch of the 2018 Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship and Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant programs, designed to help veterans complete the postsecondary education or training they need to return to — and succeed in — civilian life and work. We need your help to spread the word.

The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program provides scholarships up to $7,000 per year, to fill gaps for veterans and the spouses of disabled veterans after military benefits and other grants and scholarships have been utilized. To help recipients focus on completing their degree, these scholarships are renewable, and award amounts will grow by $1,000 each year. The deadline to apply is February 28.

Wells Fargo’s emergency grant program helps veterans already enrolled in postsecondary education meet their household expenses when faced with unexpected financial setbacks. Ranging up to $1,000, these immediate, one-time grants are designed to keep recipients in school without creating undue financial hardship.
