Mill Creek scholarship
The Mill Creek City Council is accepting applications for the Association of Washington Cities Center for Quality Communities Scholarship.
High school seniors who live in Mill Creek are encouraged to apply to become the city’s nominee. The chosen student will receive $500 from the city, and will then be in the running for one of six statewide scholarships worth $1,500.
Those interested must expect to graduate high school in June and continue their education in the 2020-21 school year.
The City Council is looking for a student who has been involved with local government or with a school or community leadership activity.
The original deadline was March 9, but that has been moved up so the council has time to make a decision. Now, applications must be turned in by Feb. 28.
Download an application online at cqc.org, and submit it in person or by mail to the City of Mill Creek, Attn.: Kristen Rasmussen, 15728 Main St. Mill Creek, WA 98012.
