2022-2023 Local Scholarship Program
The Local Scholarship Program for seniors is closed! Deadline to apply was March 5, 2023. List of Local Scholarships to apply for.
The Snohomish Education Foundation, along with the SHS, GPHS and AIM College and Career Centers, manage this scholarship program. This scholarship program usually offers 80+ scholarships from donors to either SHS, GP, AIM or all three schools. In the past, this scholarship was a notebook program and each senior applying had to complete a notebook to apply. Three years ago, we changed the process and moved it to the Washboard.org.
How to sign up for the Local Scholarship Program:
- Go to the Washboard.org website and "Register Today" as a "Seeker Registration".
- Fill out a "Profile". The Local Scholarship Program requires that only some of the profile sections be completed. Here is the list of items that need to be completed.
- Make sure to attach any letters of recommendation or transcript (request to get an emailed unofficial transcript sent to you. Make sure it includes the first semester grades.)
- Once the profile is complete, click on the "My Matches" tab or the "All matches" tab on the page to see which scholarships you are matched with. Scholarships can be filtered by putting in "SEF" or "Snohomish Education Foundation" or "LSP" in the search box at the top of the page. To see all the Local Scholarships, click on "Active Scholarships" and search SEF.
- At this point, you can now apply to any of the scholarships listed. Click on "Apply" and the application page will come up.
- Make sure to fill in all the questions that have an orange * asterick by them. Most of the information will be automatically transferred from your profile pages into the application.
- Some applications will list additional questions, letters of recommendation or essays to fill out or write. These will be listed on the last page of the individual application.
- When you are done applying and have attached a transcript or other required materials, then click "Submit"! (once you click "submit", you can not access the application again! So make sure you are done with the application)

Also below you will find a detailed directions sheet, explaining how to apply for the Local Scholarship Program. Please contact Mrs. Stapleton in the College & Career Center with any questions.
Scholarships for Grades 9-12
The Washboard.org is a scholarship clearing house, so after a student makes a profile, they will be matched with a number of scholarships. All grade levels can create a WashBoard account. There are scholarships for 9-11 grades available outside of the Local Scholarship Program. Students should continue to update their profiles and check back for new scholarships. By filling out a profile, you will not only be applying for the Local Scholarship Program as a senior, but you will be matched to all the other scholarships that they offer. Good luck!
*The Snohomish Education Foundation reserves the right to update or pull individual scholarships based on donor funding.
