North Seattle College offers a variety of scholarships based on different criteria. We thank individuals, corporations, and foundations for their scholarship donations to North Seattle.

Completion Grant

North’s Completion Grant provides one-time financial support to students close to completing a certificate or degree who are experiencing an enrollment-threatening financial situation.

Completion Grant funds may be released for academic related expenses such as tuition, fees, books, academic supplies, transcript fees for reverse transfer, and personal expenses (limited to a maximum of $150) on a case-by-case basis.

Local Assistance/Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded based on a range of criteria, which usually reflect the views or purposes of the donor providing the award. While many scholarships have similar elements, you should always read the application carefully. Every organization has its own particular requirements and application process. To find out specific information go to Current Scholarships where these organizations links are always listed. They are updated monthly, so be sure to check back soon!

International Student Scholarships

Complete the FAFSA or WASFA

It is a good idea to apply for financial aid through FAFSA/WASFA. Many students think they won’t be eligible but are able to receive some type of funding through this process. Some scholarships require that you have already completed this step too, so we recommend completing it as soon as possible.

Trust funds or checks from family members

If you receive a check made out to “North Seattle College” for your education from your trust fund or directly from a family member or friend, for financial aid awarding purposes we need to process it like a scholarship check.  We have to set up in our system and this may take up to a week.  We will process these for you as soon as possible.

Seattle Colleges Foundation Annual Scholarships

Seattle Colleges Foundation Annual Scholarships are available for all new and returning North Seattle College students and the application is open on an annual basis. All students are encouraged to apply! Check out the Foundation website for more information and dates to apply.
