High School Student Scholarships

Forest believed that if you can get a student into college they will find a way to stay there until their education is complete but he also knew that sometimes taking that initial step into college could be a financial challenge. 
 
The F.C. and Ruth V. Kelsey Foundation was established in 1999 with the idea of financially helping kids make that first step. A recipient may attend any college, university or vocational school of their choice which will lead to a degree or certification.  
 
The one absolute requirement for a high school senior is they must be graduating from a Grays Harbor high school or have been homeschooled in Grays Harbor. If you are not a resident of Grays Harbor this scholarship is NOT available to you.
