Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund


Scholarships Awards Ceremony Friday March 23, 2018 7:30pm

Join us at the Mount Baker Community Clubhouse in support of our students

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund was created in Mount Baker in 1985 as a neighborhood effort to honor the work and dreams of Dr. King. We hope to award as many as 15 scholarships of up to $6,000 each will be awarded to students who live or go to school in Southeast Seattle.

The goal of this Scholarship Fund is to help students who are members of racial or ethnic minorities, underrepresented in American colleges and universities, achieve the dream of a higher education. The Scholarship Fund seeks out students who show financial need and academic promise, and who have overcome obstacles and contributed to their community. This community's strong support of the recipients is one of the most unique and important attributes of the scholarship.

Mission Statement:

In furtherance of the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr., the Mount Baker Community Club awards college scholarships to deserving students of color who might not otherwise achieve their dream of a college education. We seek out and give highest consideration to young people who show financial need, have overcome obstacles, have worked to improve their communities and who might be overlooked by traditional scholarships.
