Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund


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. This year 21 scholarships of up to $ 5000 each were awarded to students who live and go to school in our community.

The goal of this scholarship is to help deserving students achieve the dream of a higher education.  The scholarship seeks out students who show financial need and academic promise, 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 Mt Baker Community Club awards college scholarships to deserving neighborhood 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.
