Want to go to college, but need some help with expenses? College scholarships and grants can help you attain your education dreams!

A variety of college scholarships and grants are available to South Kitsap School District students throughout the year. Scholarships are posted in the Career Center at SKHS and online. They will be posted in order of due date and students are advised to check at least once a week for new postings. Postings are also advertised on our school's daily news show, WTV.

**Most scholarships require 1-3 letters of recommendation from teachers or non family member adults in your life that can speak on your behalf. This form LetterofRecommendationRequestFillable.pdf is a useful tool to help you make that request.**

Olympic College: Link Updated 2/28/24

If you are attending Olympic College there are several scholarships available.  Deadlines and requirements vary by offering.  Please check out:


Military Connected Youth (Various deadlines)

Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC):

Let the Army help you pay  for college! ROTC is not basic training and does not include boot camp. The number one focus is academic success. ROTC scholarships can cover either tuition and fees OR room and board. Both choices come with money for living and books and can be applied to more than 1,000 participating schools. Scholarship determination is based on achievements and grades, not financial need.

Naval Reserve Officer Training Corp (NROTC):

NROTC provides similar benefits as Army ROTC with the opportunity to become an officer in the Navy or Marine Corp, or earn a BSN in nursing.  See the link and PDF below for details.       


Harvard announces free tuition:
Harvard University announced recently that from now on undergraduate students from low-income families will pay no tuition. If you know of a family earning less than $40,000 a year with an honor student graduating from high school soon, Harvard University wants to pay the tuition.
