Each year, the Lake Washington PTSA Council awards a variety of scholarships to graduating seniors and to LWSD certificated staff.  Funding for these scholarships is provided by the generosity of all PTSAs in the district, the continued support and success of Council’s Annual Scholarship Basket Auction, and donations from the greater community.  Student scholarships, recognizing achievement and community service, assist recipients in their post-secondary education.  Scholarships for certificated LWSD staff provide assistance with continuing education at an institute of higher learning, through LWSD Professional Development, or for pursuing National Board Certification.


The Lake Washington Schools Foundation (LWSF) is offering two scholarships to students graduating from a LWSD high school and enrolling in a four-year college.  Each scholarship is $10,000 ($2500 per year).  One scholarship will be awarded for Merit or Education and one for Perseverance or Turn Around.  All applicants applying for a PTSA Council scholarship are automatically considered for the LWSF scholarships, no additional application materials are necessary.
