The Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation offers numerous scholarships, including ones for high school seniors, college students, and adult learners. Adult scholarships are available to adults with financial need who either reside within the boundaries of the Stanwood-Camano School District, or who are former graduates of Stanwood High School or Lincoln Hill High School. To be eligible for the Stanwood Democrats/Delores Haglund Jones Memorial Scholarship, applicants must: be a single parent at least 21 years old; reside within the boundaries of the Stanwood-Camano School District or be a former graduate of either Stanwood High School or Lincoln Hill High School; and demonstrate financial need.
The community scholarship program was created to make it easier for students to apply for the many different scholarships offered by local sponsors each year. The program made finding and applying for local scholarships much easier for students through the introduction of a standard scholarship application, a standard timeline, and a central coordination point for the application process. The community scholarship program also makes it easy for any individual, family, group or business to offer scholarships to local students without having to create an award process on their own.
