The Kirkland Kiwanis Foundation announced today that it will again make up to eight scholarships available to graduating seniors on the Eastside. The awards range from $500.00 to $1,000.00. Students, or their parents, must live or work within the attendance boundaries of Lake Washington High School or Juanita High School. This includes Kirkland and parts of Redmond and Woodinville. Students may attend any public or private high school, so long as they or their parents live or work within the designated area.
The Kiwanis Foundation Scholarships are based on a variety of factors, including academic performance, financial need and community service.
Kirkland Kiwanis Foundation is affiliated with the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland which also supports Special Olympics, Eastside Baby Corner, Kirkland Interfaith Transitions in Housing. Kiwanis sponsors Key Club service organizations at Lake Washington High School, Juanita High School, the International Community School and a Builder’s Club at Kirkland Middle School.
The Kirkland Kiwanis Foundation Scholarships are awarded in honor of Kiwanis members who have exemplified the Kiwanis tradition of service to the community. “Supporting youth in our community is one of the principal purposes of Kiwanis,” said Jay Henwood, President of the service club. “The Kiwanis Foundation Scholarship Program is just one of our programs that assists young people in our community.”
