SK Community Pride Scholarship seeking applicants

The scholarship is a $2,000 award for a graduating South Kitsap senior.

PORT ORCHARD — The South Kitsap Community Pride Scholarship, sponsored by South Kitsap Properties in conjunction with the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce, is open to all graduating South Kitsap School District seniors.

The scholarship is a one-time, non-renewable $2,000 award, according to Doug Miller, managing broker with South Kitsap Properties.

To be eligible, all applicants must be attending a “next-step” school, including but not limited to, a four-year university, community college or trade school, Miller said. An application, video and signed parental waiver are all required to be considered for the scholarship.

“The application focuses on the student’s vision for the future of our community,” Miller said, “and what role they will play in making Port Orchard and the greater South Kitsap community a better place to live, work or invest.”

The scholarship is not income-limited or dependent, he said, and there is no minimum GPA requirement. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on April 30.
