The Diversity in Business Scholarship, in partnership with South Puget Sound Community College Foundation, awards annual scholarships to support academic success for historically underrepresented minority students in Thurston County. Emphasizing inclusion, diversity, and equal treatment, the Diversity in Business Scholarship creates educational opportunities and pathways to a better quality of life within our communities.

People of color living in Thurston County, attending South Puget Sound Community College (any course of study), and planning to contribute to the Thurston County community are encouraged to apply. General applications were completed on the SPSCC’s Foundation website at www.spscc.edu/scholarships. Students are also asked to submit a personal essay describing their previous, current, or future community service in Thurston County.

Thurston County Chamber Foundation established the scholarship in 2020 to support academic success for people of color in Thurston County. Emphasizing inclusion, diversity, and equal treatment of others, the Diversity in Business Scholarship creates educational opportunities and pathways to a better quality of life within our communities. Thanks again to Washington State Employees Credit Union and Great Wolf Lodge for making the Diversity in Business Scholarship program possible!
