see ya later, see ya later foundation, see ya later washington, brian william, auburn wa charity,The Scott Banke Memorial Scholarship will award six (6) $2,000 scholarships in 2021. The last day to submit an application is tomorrow Sunday, May 9.

Graduating seniors residing in Auburn attending any public or private accredited high school in Auburn (including home school) are eligible for the scholarship. “We started out offering two scholarships in 2012 for $1,000. Based on community support we have increased that number to six scholarships worth $1,500 each,” said See Ya Later Foundation Board member Brian Williams.

How to Apply:

Auburn seniors wanting to apply for the scholarship should follow the application criteria outlined on the See Ya Later website.  Here are the basic requirements:

  1. Submit an online application
  2. Email only one Letter of Recommendation to [email protected]
  3. Students must submit/email a Community Service Timeline to [email protected]

Applications due by May 9th

“Each year we receive between 40-60 completed applications, that must include letters of reference as well as a community service timeline. The applications are narrowed down to the top 12 students based on a review by our scholarship committee. The top 12 are then scheduled for an interview with that same committee, and the interview is scored, along with the written application to determine the finalists,” Williams said.

Williams also shared pointers for those applying, “don’t short cut anything. Fill out a complete application. Sell yourself. Tell the committee about what you have done and what you want to do. We want to know how you are making an impact in the community and how you will continue to do so in the future.”

Students attending technical or trade schools are eligible for the Scott Banke Memorial Scholarship Fund.  All awarded students must be enrolled, with a student ID number before funds being issued. Scholarship funds are issued directly to the awarded student’s school.

See Ya Later’s Scott Banke Memorial Scholarship Fund is one of several scholarship opportunities available to Auburn seniors.
