The Shoreline Community College Foundation has awarded thousands of academic and workforce scholarships to deserving Shoreline students. In addition to federal and state financial aid, scholarships are a great way to offset all or part of the cost of your education.

Creating a scholarship application in AwardSpring(Shoreline's online scholarship management tool) is a great way to be informed about scholarship opportunities and become eligible for scholarship funds.



Students can apply for scholarships (for tuition, books, & fees) via AwardSpring.

The Shoreline Community College Foundation created the 1964 Society Faculty Professional Development Endowed Scholarship to provide funds in perpetuity for faculty to use toward their professional development. This scholarship will also benefit the College and students by strengthening the faculty in their various professional capacities. In certain years, this scholarship may be awarded to full-time faculty, associate faculty, or faculty in specific areas of study at the discretion of the Foundation Board of Directors. This will be noted on the annual application. Professional development includes:  attending conferences, workshops, meetings, or delivering presentations as a means to further their expertise in teaching at Shoreline Community College.
