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.
