In 2020, the Grays Harbor Community Foundation awarded over $825,000 in scholarships to outstanding undergraduate and vocational students from Grays Harbor County. Scholarships may be used for tuition, room and board, or required fees and supplies.  Recipients who remain eligible and reapply via the online renewal application process each year may receive up to four years funding for their undergraduate or vocational studies.  Students fill out one application to be eligible for one of the available scholarships. The next application period will be January 1st – March 1st, 2021.
