Graduates Holding Diplomas

The purpose of our scholarship program is to provide financial assistance to deserving and needy students. Because we live in a school district which serves many low-income students, the need is great. Our scholarships benefit not only deserving students, but their families and the community as well.  Our goal this year is to raise at least $20,000 to help our students.

Your generous donation helps Chimacum High School graduates continue their post-high school education through college and technical school programs. It’s how dreams are realized!  Help us achieve our goal by donating today!

Friends of Chimacum Schools (FOCS) Scholarships 2024


Last year FOCS awarded over $90,000 in local scholarships to students going on to either college or vocational school. This year YOU could be a deserving recipient. Please see your counselor for help in putting together your portfolio and then submit it in the spring to be eligible for a variety of scholarships. It’s not as hard as you might think, and it can really pay off for you!

This represents the most current list of scholarships available to students through the Friends of Chimacum Schools Foundation. Some scholarships are renewable, depending on the donor’s discretion and on the student’s academic performance while in college. To be eligible for FOCS scholarships, students must be enrolled in college or vocational courses by fall of 2024, and must remain enrolled for the year of the award or until the course of study has been completed.
