Discover Burien is now accepting applications for its 2018 “Making Burien Awesome” Scholarship program.

The scholarship fund – started in 2015 – was designed to help students in our community achieve their education and career goals.

This will be the third year that this program is being offered to our community. Investing in the future of our community is all part of our commitment here at Discover Burien.

Financial need, academic performance, leadership potential, and participation in Discover Burien programs including volunteering will all be considered when awarding monies. Applicants will need to fill out a Scholarship Application, and all supporting documents by Dec. 31, 2017. No exceptions will be made after that date. Candidates will be selected for interviews and notified by the Scholarship Committee by Feb. 16, 2018. Award recipients must be able to attend the Discover Burien Annual Dinner on March 9, 2018 in order to accept the award.
