Thanks to generous contributors, the Highline Schools Foundation is proud to offer many different types of scholarships with awards up to $30,000 – and only one application to complete!
Scholarships are open to graduating seniors* who are enrolled full-time in a Highline Public School (see below for more information).
The following documents may be attached to your application or sent separately:

- Recommendation Form. One (1) Recommendation Form should be completed by an adult (not a relative) who has had a significant role in interacting with you in your academic, extracurricular, community service, or leadership activities. Teachers, school counselors, and coaches are great options.
- Students must graduate from any high school within Highline Public Schools, by 6/30/22.
- *Students should live within the boundaries of Highline Public Schools or those who live outside the district but attend a Highline School through the McKinney Vento program.
To receive a scholarship, a student must be enrolled as full-time student at a post-secondary, accredited trade school, college or university., enrolled in college level classes and continue to attend school full-time to receive awarded scholarship money.
For scholarships paid out over multiple years, students agree to continue to be enrolled full-time, keep a GPA of 2.5, and submit transcripts annually to the Highline Schools Foundation Scholarship Committee.
General Scholarship Info
- Preference will be given to those recipients who have not received a substantial scholarship or scholarships from other entities. It is the goal of the Foundation to support those students who would not be able to attend college without our scholarship support.
- Scholarship money will be paid directly to the college and may be used for qualified higher education expenses including tuition, student fees, books, room and board, and supplies or equipment required for enrollment. Scholarship funds will never be sent directly to students.
- The Highline Schools Foundation will not pay scholarship money to schools outside the United States.
- Students may defer their scholarship for one year if they find that they are over-funded or if they have to delay the start of college. However, if scholarship funds are not used by the fall one year after high school graduation, the scholarship will be re-awarded to another student.
