Scholarship Opportunities

  I      CLASS OF 2021

Dear Class of 2021,

As we navigate this unprecedented time, I want to help you with steps you can take at home to continue pursuing scholarship opportunities. This year, our scholarship notebook program will be 100% digital! The transition to digital scholarship notebooks is a long time coming and I'm happy to announce that you'll still be able to express your creativity during the process. You can find all the information you need on the Career Center website.

As the year progresses, there will be other scholarship opportunities that require separate applications You can find them in our annual "Scholarship Watch." Once these scholarships are announced, they'll be listed below with links to websites and applications. When applying for these independent opportunities, please take the following steps:


  1. Access the scholarship application by following the links below. 
  2. Read the criteria. If you qualify for the scholarship, read and follow the instructions to apply for the award.
  3. Make a checklist and ensure that you send all the necessary and required information to the scholarship organization.
  4. If you need a transcript, email Mrs. Kettel dkettel@sequimschools.org
  5. Watch your email and check the Career Center website for more opportunities.
