Community Engagement Matching Scholarship

"Uniting Passion with Educational Pursuit to Create College Pathways"

To fulfill our urban-serving mission, the University of Washington Tacoma is continually working to identify the needs of our community and we are committed to supporting organizations who promote higher education with youth. The Community Engagement Matching Scholarship program is a collaborative effort between community based organizations and UW Tacoma to enhance the financial capacity of smaller nonprofits to offer college scholarships. By enhancing the financial support offered through smaller, local nonprofits, we are working with our community to widen pathways to the promise of a bright future through a university education.
