“Seeds for Scholars” Scholarship
Cedar Grove is committed to supporting the local communities where we operate in addition to the broader Puget Sound region. In 2013, we launched our “Seeds of Scholars” scholarship program, offering four scholarships to graduating high school seniors at schools surrounding our Maple Valley and Everett facilities. These scholarships include:
- $2500 payment made directly to the college of acceptance
- The opportunity to be interviewed for a summer internship at Cedar Grove in the summer of graduation and every summer thereafter while the student is in college
- A dinner for the scholar and their parents with the director of facilities at Cedar Grove Composting and the director of community relations either before graduation or in the summer thereafter
The “Seeds for Scholars” scholarship is available to students in the Marysville School District, at Everett High School, Liberty High School (Renton) and Tahoma High School (Covington).
This scholarship will be awarded to a student who has demonstrated interest, action and achievement in issues surrounding sustainability and the environment (i.e. Green Team membership, Eagle Scout project involving building a garden, supporting school’s recycling and composting efforts, environmental courses, camps, etc.)
