Scholarships - Support Student Success!
The Foundation awarded more than $100,000 in scholarships to EvCC students in 2011.
Your support of our student scholarship program provides qualified students wishing to attend Everett Community College the opportunity for higher education, regardless of their financial status. Every dollar that you contribute is one less dollar a student must borrow, one less hour he or she must work to pay for college.
The most valuable gift you can give is the gift of an education.
Establish a Scholarship
Creating a named scholarship with the Everett Community College Foundation is easy! You can choose to establish an annual scholarship or create an endowment in your name or in honor of a loved one. You can direct the scholarship to students majoring in a particular program and/or area of interest such as nursing, athletics, engineering or any EvCC program.
Create an Annual Scholarship
An Annual Scholarship provides a yearly award to students who meet the criteria established by you and the university. The scholarship may be established with a one-time gift with the awards being made until the funds are diminished or the donor may contribute the amount of the award every year.
Create an Endowed Scholarship
Scholarship endowments enable you to create a scholarship in perpetuity. A minimum donation of $20,000 is required to establish an endowment within the Everett Community College Foundation and can be made in a one-time gift or may be pledged over a four-year period. The principal is invested and a portion of the return is used each year to support the scholarship. The remainder is added back to the principal to promote growth and protect against inflation.
Other Naming Opportunities
Recognition through naming opportunities for programs, buildings, or endowments can memorialize a loved one, salute a mentor or honor one’s family. The staff of the Everett Community College Foundation can help you develop the naming opportunity to meet your philanthropic wishes.
