Scholarships for Students

In addition to grants for teachers, the Foundation offers a variety of scholarships for students. Learn more about the scholarship opportunities and how to apply below.

Teachers Make A Difference

Teachers Make a Difference, sponsored by the North Central Education Foundation, offers a $1,000 scholarship for high school seniors and college students in the North Central ESD area who are interested in pursuing a career in education.

Students are invited to apply for the scholarship by writing a 1,000 word essay describing the following:

  • “A teacher who has made a difference in my life.”
  • “Why I want to become a teacher.”

The essay needs to be submitted, along with a completed 2024 application form, to the Teachers Make a Difference committee by April 15, 2024. Consideration will also be given to grades, activities and financial need. A finalist and alternate will be selected from the applications. The top essays will be included in the next edition of Teachers Make a Difference, which will be published to help fund a scholarship the following year. Please note that you may attach letters of recommendation rather than using the recommendation form.

Please call Eldene Wall at 509.669.6838 or e-mail if you have questions about the application or process.
