The WCCF 2016-17 general scholarship application is now closed

The WCC Foundation offers many scholarship opportunities to Whatcom Community College students. Scholarships are awarded to students demonstrating academic achievement, personal growth, and/or contributions to fellow students, the College, or the community.

The General Application is the only application for all WCCF scholarships. 

  • Plus, you will need to upload an unofficial copy of your latest transcript to the application. You can obtain this from your WCC account or check with an advisor.
  • and, two Letters of Reference from a teacher, professor, counselor, school administrator or employer will need to be uploaded to the application.  Please plan ahead to obtain these letters to give the letter writer time to prepare a thoughtful letter.  

Helpful Hints:

  • There are 5 essay questions (150 words or less).  The essay questions help the application review committee get a sense of who you are and your future goals.    
  • Some scholarships have more specific criteria. By answering all questions on the Questionnaire tab, you will ensure eligibility for all scholarships for which you are qualified.         

Award Process:

  • Notification of scholarship awards are typically sent in May and June, with some additional award notifications sent over the summer.
  • Notifications will be both mailed and e-mailed to the address listed on your scholarship application. Be sure to update the Foundation of any address or email changes.
