Building our Future Student Scholarship
The Building Our Future scholarship is designed to encourage well-qualified and motivated community and technical college students to pursue the academic credentials that would allow them to assume administrative or faculty positions in the Washington state community and technical college system.
Students who graduate from community or technical colleges and then complete their academic requirements for a bachelor’s and/or master’s degree have the potential to be effective administrators and instructors since they have first-hand experience with community and technical colleges. They will bring a special dimension to our campuses and have an allegiance to our mission and goals. They will become role models and provide support to current faculty and staff members, as well as students.
The scholarship of $1,200 is to provide assistance for tuition, books, and related educational expenses. The scholarship is intended to support community or technical college graduates who will continue their academic studies (e.g. junior year) at a baccalaureate institution immediately after completing their Associate in Arts, Associate in Sciences or other transfer degree. The purpose of the scholarship is to actively recruit qualified, motivated students who wish to pursue teaching/administrative careers within the Washington community and technical college system. The Building our Future Scholarship application is due by May 15, 2017. Scholarship applications are accepted from member colleges only.
