​Each year, the Alumni Association awards two scholarships to deserving Bothell High School graduating seniors to help with their expenses for college or technical school.  The Association's scholarship committee works through the Scholarship Foundation of Northshore in making those selections.  Students apply through the Foundation, and applications are forwarded to the Association's committee for review.  The committee interviews candidates and awards the scholarships based on both community service and scholastic achievement. 


It has been an honor and a privilege for me to play a role in helping young people achieve their dreams of higher education. To see the scholarship recipients by year, go to our Awards page.
