Scholarship Program for Students

Funding_SCHOLARSHIPSGreater Tacoma Community Foundation’s scholarship funds provide financial aid for students who are seeking tuition assistance at vocational, two-year, or four-year colleges or universities accredited in the United States.

Today, GTCF is home to more than 90 scholarship funds set up by individuals determined to reduce financial barriers for people to achieve their academic dreams. Because of the generosity of our donors who established scholarship funds, over 2,800 scholarships have been awarded during the last 35 years, totaling more than $3.5 million in assistance to support our future leaders.

GTCF works directly with many different selection committees to award scholarships to deserving students.  Eligibility requirements and application contact information vary for each scholarship.

If you are interested in learning about available scholarships, please contact your school counseling or scholarship office, or visit the free online scholarship clearinghouse, theWashboard.org.  This website makes it easy for Washington students to efficiently find and apply for scholarships.
