The WCC Foundation offers many scholarship opportunities to Whatcom Community College students ranging from $750 to $5,500 for full time students. This year we awarded over $300,000 to WCC 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. Students do not need to apply for for individual scholarships.

  • Applications must be submitted by Monday March 6, 2017 at 11:59PM.
  • There are 2 personal statements (150 words or less). These questions give reviewers a sense of who you are and your future goals. In addition, there are opportunities to address your volunteer, work, and extracurricular activities.
  • We require one letter of recommendation, so please plan ahead and reach out to your recommender early to give them time to write a thoughtful letter.
  • An unofficial copy of your latest transcript will need to be uploaded to the application. You can obtain this from your WCC account or check with an adviser.
