The Shoreline Community College Foundation has awarded thousands of general and workforce scholarships to deserving Shoreline students. In addition to federal and state aid, scholarships are a great way to offset all or part of the cost of your education. Learn about the different scholarships you can apply for through the Foundation.
Annual scholarships provide support to students for the upcoming school year. While all annual scholarships support tuition, many also cover the cost of textbooks and other program needs.

The Foundation has funds available to help students who are having an unexpected, short-term financial crisis that impacts their ability to attend classes. To qualify for these funds, you must either be enrolled for at least 6 credits or working towards a certification or degree at Shoreline. You must be able to demonstrate how this is a financial emergency that you could not have planned for, how the situation is short-term, and how it impacts your studies at Shoreline.
If you don't know whether you qualify for emergency support or if you have questions about the application process, contact Alysen Laakso.
Requests for housing support (rent, mortgages, moving costs) should be directed to the United Way Benefits Hub located in PUB 9203.
1964 Society Faculty Professional Development Scholarship
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.
