The Town is now accepting applications for the AWC Center for Quality Communities Scholarship Fund.
The scholarship is available through a statewide competitive process for students who are actively engaged in their city government and/or community and plan to attend post-secondary school in fall 2020.
Up to six $1500 scholarships will be awarded. As a member of the Association of Washington Cities (AWC), the Town may nominate one student each year. Two Friday Harbor students have received this scholarship in the past five years.
To be eligible, a student must be a Washington resident graduating from high school or home school, or receiving a GED in spring/summer 2020. The student must plan to continue their education at an accredited college or trade school in the 2020–2021 academic year on a half-time or more basis and have been involved with a city government or with a community/school leadership activity.
Information and application materials can be obtained at the Town’s website www.fridayharbor.org or at cfqc.org. Completed applications are due at Town Hall no later than 4:30 pm Friday, February 28, 2020. Submit completed materials to:
