Highline Schools Foundation Announces STIA Scholarships; Deadline Mar. 23
Each year, thanks to the generous support from Sea-Tac Airport and HMS Host, Highline Schools Foundation is able to provide the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Scholarship Program to graduating Highline School District seniors.
This needs-based scholarship program awards three students who are pursuing a college education. Two $14,000 scholarships will be awarded toward a university/college education and one $8,000 scholarship will be awarded toward a vocational or community college education. All scholarships are distributed over a 2-year period. Priority is given to students who have not received a substantial scholarship from other entities.
The application is available on-line this year at http://www.highlineschoolsfoundation.org/scholarships/stiascholarshipapplication.html
The application deadline is Friday, March 23, 2012.
Students should seek the help of their school’s counselor with the application, or to contact the Foundation office at [email protected] or (206) 248-5196.
“The STIA scholarship I was fortunate enough to receive allowed me to focus more of my attention on my classes and less on worrying about paying my college costs. It was a real motivator for me.” -Christina Shull, former STIA scholarship recipient
