~2021 Yelm High School and Yelm Extension School Graduates & Parents~

 We have gone electronic with our scholarship process which will open for 2021 graduates in December of 2020.  All applicants must complete a profile.  Students will be notified of all scholarships for which they may qualify after successfully completing and submitting a profile.  Follow directions carefully from start to finish in order to apply for and accept a scholarship.

Student Instructions click here.

Parent Instructions click here.

Reference instructions: References are not required for Yelm Dollars for Scholars

Parental permission:  If the student is under 16, the parent MUST login and grant permission for the student to apply for any scholarship.

Though a student may provide information to qualify for other scholarships, not all sections of the profile are required for a Yelm Dollars for Scholars scholarship. Information our Chapter does NOT require:

Test scores:   SAT/ACT

Parent financial information: Required for need based scholarships only.   Yelm Dollars for Scholars offers only merit based scholarships.  If provided, our scholarship evaluators will only see the Expected Family Contribution. Our chapter can NOT see detailed information


Please note you must click on transcript request and enter Phone number: 360-458-7777 Nicole Mathis


Also, acceptance of the scholarship authorizes Yelm Dollars for Scholars to use all photographs of the student provided to or taken by Yelm Dollars for Scholars volunteers including those from events like the auction or school graduation to promote its mission.

After review for completeness and assessment by our Scholarship Committee, the student will be notified of interview date and time. 

Failure to complete any required part of the scholarship process and/or application process as outlined above may result in disqualification.
