Current college and graduate school students, living in Grays Harbor County, are encouraged to seek financial assistance for their education by applying for the E. K. and Lillian F. Bishop Foundation scholarships. Applications are available through the on-line scholarship application program, located at www.ghc.edu/bishopscholarship, through Grays Harbor College’s website.
Applications must be submitted no later than July 1 and recipients will be announced by early August.
Started nearly 25 years ago by the Bishop Foundation, this 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.
Grays Harbor College manages funds for this scholarship program and Eric Potts is coordinating the program.
To qualify, applicants must have a minimum cumulate 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 fines.
Further information about the program is available by contacting Eric Potts at (360) 538-4121, firstname.lastname@example.org .
