City seeks civic-minded students for scholarship

By Nicholas Johnson | Jan 11, 2017

High school students who live in Mukilteo and plan to graduate this spring or summer to pursue a post-secondary degree in the fall are eligible for $1,000 in scholarship money.

The scholarship program is sponsored by the Association of Washington Cities' (AWC) Center for Quality Communities Scholarship fund. The center promotes municipal leadership development and civic engagement.

The City of Mukilteo is seeking applications through 4 p.m. Feb. 24. Details about the application and selection process are available at www.cfqc.org/Home.aspx.

“Our award-winning schools and community have inspired many students living in Mukilteo to volunteer their time in school and community leadership projects,” Mayor Jennifer Gregerson said in a press release. “The City’s Mukilteo Youth Advisory Committee is one such group of highly motivated Kamiak High School students who advise me and the City Council on youth-related issues in our community.”

Six $1,000 scholarships are available to students statewide who plan to attend college or a trade program beginning this fall.

Applicants must have been involved with city government or with a community/school leadership activity.

“Our 2015 nominee, Simran Handa, was an exemplary student and was one of the top six applicants statewide to receive this scholarship,” Gregerson said. “I know there are many other great Mukilteo students who would also deserve this honor.”

Applicants must also live within the Mukilteo city limits, be graduating from high school, home school or receiving a GED this spring or summer, and plan to continue their education at an accredited post-secondary institution in the 2017/2018 academic year on at least a half-time basis.

Scholarship funds will be sent directly to the institution. Funds can be used for educational expenses and will be deposited directly into the student account.

Applications may be submitted to: City of Mukilteo, Attn: Executive Department, 11930 Cyrus Way, Mukilteo, WA 98275.
