The Yakima Valley College Foundation is excited to award 220 Yakima Valley College Students with scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year. The average scholarship award per student is $3,500.

Foundation President Mary Sundquist noted that as post-secondary credentials become ever more essential to preparing individuals for high-demand, well-paying jobs, the Foundation and its donors help ensure YVC provides an affordable pathway for students.

“We salute those who have been responsible for the growth of the Yakima Valley College Foundation and

encourage others to meet the challenge of equipping our young people for a productive future,” Sundquist said.
