    Each year since 1974, the Seattle Schools Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to graduating seniors of Seattle Public Schools in recognition of students who have overcome significant life challenges to achieve their dreams.

    This is the first year the Seattle Schools Scholarship Fund has increased the scholarship amount by $1,000 in order to provide better higher education opportunities to our graduating seniors! The scholarships are in the amount of $3,500 and are awarded to students each year for tuition expenses at any college or university or vocational training of the student's choice.

    The scholarship is funded largely from an annual contribution from the Seattle School Retirees Association, as well as generous donations from community members.

    The 2018 ceremony will be dedicated to former School Board Director and Trustee, Barbara Peterson, for her many years of service to the Scholarship Fund, as well as to the memory of Ellen Roe, former long-term School Board Director and Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Scholarship Fund.

    Thank you to this year’s selection committee including school counselors and the Seattle Schools Scholarship Fund Trustees.
