Woodland Public Schools proudly presents the $50K-for-20 Scholarship Awards, an annual scholarship program providing $2,500 scholarships to 20 graduating seniors seeking further education after graduation including universities, community colleges, vocational schools, and trade schools, a total gift of $50,000 annually.
Any graduating senior may apply for the $50K-for-20 Scholarship Awards. The Scholarship Committee prioritized making the $50K-for-20 Scholarship Awards available to all students interested in pursuing additional education, not only students pursuing traditional university or college education after high school. In addition to traditional higher education, scholarship recipients can use the funds for vocational schools, trade schools, and other programs.
The goal of the $50K-for-20 Scholarship Awards is to encourage graduating seniors who wouldn’t normally think they could continue their education to at least give it a try. As the need for skilled tradespeople continues to rise throughout the United States each year, the Committee seeks to encourage all students interested in furthering their education for any vocation to apply for consideration.
A $250 gift simply doesn’t provide as much assistance in today’s economy as it did when the trust was established more than 30 years ago. However, a $2,500 gift can pay for two full-time quarters of tuition at a community college or substantially reduce the cost of a vocational program, truly providing recipients with the opportunity to pursue higher education following high school.
Community members and businesses can donate any amount to the fund online using our webpage . There are no fees to the district for this service, so 100% of all donations go toward the scholarship fund. You can also donate in-person at Woodland High School located at 1500 Dike Access Road, Woodland, WA 98674.
There is no minimum to donate, however the Trust Fund Committee has established different recognition levels for donors:
