Scholarships – General Information

2021 scholarships are now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted an application! 

The North Thurston Education Foundation (NTEF) has a robust scholarship program that provides funds for North Thurston Public Schools graduates who will attend post-secondary schools, including vocational or trade schools, colleges or universities.

NTEF awarded 62 scholarships in 2020 valued at $151,000! The scholarship program includes designated named endowed scholarships and Foundation-funded scholarships. Each scholarship has a minimum value of $2,000 with a guarantee that at least one student at each NTPS high school will receive a scholarship. Some scholarships are renewable from year to year.

In addition to being on track to graduate from a North Thurston Public School*, applicants must demonstrate:
(1) The skills necessary to succeed in their chosen post-secondary school.
(2) Good citizenship and leadership qualities.
(3) A need for financial assistance to meet their educational goals.
* The exception is the Vaughan Philpot scholarship that will be awarded to an NTPS Gravity student who has completed his/her GED or graduation requirements.
