The Issaquah Schools Foundation has created a new scholarship to help Issaquah School District juniors and graduating seniors continue their educational journey.

The foundation’s new Impact Scholarship will be awarded to students who submit essays about the ways foundation-funded programs have enriched their education.

The Impact Scholarship will be awarded in two categories. Entries to the Written category will be judged on answers to two essay questions. Students who enter under the Presentation category will be judged on a five-minute oral presentation of their written essays.

Winning students may be given the opportunity to tell their story at the Issaquah Schools Foundation’s 17th annual Nourish Every Mind Luncheon on May 14 or second annual Nourish Every Mind Breakfast on May 20.

“Students may not even be aware of the many ways their education has been impacted by foundation investments,” Robin Callahan, Issaquah Schools Foundation executive director, said in a news release. “Many are surprised to learn the role our generous community plays in making possible extraordinary learning opportunities.”

Callahan said she hopes the scholarship competition will help unearth stories of the transformative power of community investment and provide much needed scholarship funds to deserving students.

Apply at Completed essays are due no later than April 13.

Students elected to enter the Presentation category will present to judges April 16 at the Issaquah Schools Foundation office.

Student trustees and children of the foundation board and staff may not apply.
