Scholarships available for students with community service hours | Letters

May your holiday season be filled with joy and thanks for the gift of living in such a special place! As you may already know, the mission of San Juan Island Service Scholarship is to support higher education and promote volunteerism among our community’s youth.

Students who have completed a minimum of 80 hours of volunteer community service during their high school career are eligible for a scholarship from our organization. The scholarship is not based upon grades, but solely upon a student’s volunteer efforts to make their own community a better place to live. This allows every student the opportunity to qualify for a scholarship to use toward higher education through service to the San Juan Island community.In 2015 our organization:

– Granted over $23,000 in local scholarships

– Helped foster over 1,200 hours of student volunteerism on San Juan Island

– Support 30+ local non-profit and service organizations

By making a donation to the San Juan Island Service Scholarship Fund, you directly support and encourage these young people to become the next generation of volunteers and leaders. To keep this great program going we do need your financial help whether it is a $10, $100, or $1,000 donation.
