Scholarships

With tuition costs rising, financial aid and scholarships are a very necessary piece of the higher education puzzle. Students are encouraged to apply for scholarships in their senior year of high school to help reduce the cost of college.

Thanks to generous funders, the Foundation is proud to offer many different types of scholarships with awards up to $20,000—and only one application to complete! Scholarships are open to all graduating seniors who are enrolled full-time in a Highline Public School.
