Current college and graduate school students who live in Grays Harbor County are eligible to seek financial assistance through E. K. and Lillian F. Bishop Foundation scholarships.
Started nearly 25 years ago, the scholarship fund is designated for students in their third or fourth years of accredited four-year college or universities, as well as for students in their first two years of accredited graduate schools.
Applications must be submitted no later than July 9 and recipients will be announced by early August.
To qualify, applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (as of June 25) and reside in Grays Harbor County.
Undergraduate applicants must be 22 years of age or younger as of June 25 in the year when the application is submitted. Graduate applicants must be 24 years of age or younger by that date.
In previous years, undergraduates were eligible to receive as much as $3,000 per year, while graduate students could receive as much as $5,000. Awards are paid directly to the student’s college to offset the cost of tuition, room, board and other costs.
Grays Harbor College manages funds for the Bishop Foundation scholarship program.
Applications are available through the online scholarship application program via the college website at www.ghc.edu/bishopscholarship.
