“It was an honor to have been chosen as recipients of the FAFE scholarships during our academic journey. The scholarships allowed us as working parents to focus on our studies and additional education opportunities such as covering our textbooks. We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Assistance League of Seattle and its contributors for their generous financial support and guidance provided during our academic journey. We hope to continue our relationship with ALS in any other capacity when the opportunity avails itself.”

YEAR IN REVIEW
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
“I am still in disbelief that Assistance League of Seattle awarded me this opportunity. I feel very blessed. I will do my very best in school. Thanks again for believing in me and helping me to pursue an education.”
OUR PROGRAM IS UNIQUE
Unlike other financial aid programs, each student who receives our support is paired with a mentor. Mentors work with students throughout their academic journey to overcome obstacles in the financial aid process. Many of our mentors and recipients have gone on to form life-long friendships.
Our community partners play a critical role in identifying students who need our support to complete their degree. Partnerships with TRiO at Seattle Public Colleges and Seattle Education Access provided a stream of eligible, motivated students in need of support, with a focus on students with one or two quarters left to finish their degree.
