The Washington State Fair Foundation is pleased to present scholarship opportunities to local students for continuing education. Scholarship awards are made possible through the generosity of the Foundation’s donors and Board of Directors, as well as the Washington State Fair and its Directors. Since the scholarship program’s inception in 1991, more than $700,000 has been awarded to students at colleges, universities and vocational/technical schools. In addition to the endowed scholarships set up by donor families, the program is primarily supported by an annual auction. The 16th annual Round Up Auction is scheduled for Friday, August 1, 2014. Please contact the Foundation office at 253-841-5105 for more information about joining us at the event and/or supporting the effort with the donation of an auction item.
In 2014 we will award at least 38 scholarships, totaling $82,500. Information about each scholarship and links for applying can be found at http://www.thefair.com/foundation/projects-and-programs/scholarships.
