Enrichment Scholarship Program

We provide hope and financial means to pursue your dreams

The Enrichment Scholarship Program provides summer scholarships to middle and high school public school students in Whatcom County.  Students may apply for summer enrichment camps in a variety of areas such as music, science, art, debate, technology, dance, leadership and many others.

These scholarships are merit based; not based on financial need.  Receiving one not only helps make it possible for the recipient to attend an enriching summer program, but it can also be listed on future college applications, which is an important factor in today’s competitive environment.

Enrichment Scholarship Winners Provide Music at Yule Boutique

This year’s Yule Boutique shoppers were entertained with beautiful music by last year’s Enrichment Scholarship Winners. Performing on cello and violin were Alma, Lilly and Maddie from Whatcom Middle School.
