Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Awards - Join Us


Scholarships Awards Ceremony Friday March 22, 2019 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. For 35 years we have raised approximately 100,000 annually to further this important work. All our neighbors are encouraged and welcome to attend the awards. There is no cost to attend - just turn up on the night.

In 2019, 12 students will receive scholarships of $6,000 for their freshman year and $6,000 for their sophomore year for a total of $12,000 per student.  Neighborhood luminaries Norm Rice and Ron Sims will MC the event.  Come to the ceremony to be inspired by these remarkable students.

This is a completely free event - everyone from the neighborhood is welcome to attend and be uplifted.

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
