Scholarships & Grants
TF is pleased to offer grants to Fidalgo Island students and school district projects. These grants are funded by community members giving specified donations for our scholarship program, not from general donations to TF.

The Student Scholarship awards scholarships to local graduating seniors sharing the goals and values of TF. The amounts vary depending on specified donations received by TF for scholarships and the candidates graduating each year.
The Anacortes School System Grant supports the development of environmentally-focused projects by Anacortes School District students (up to $1000 annually)
Due to Covid restrictions, no scholarships were granted in 2021 or 2022. They are back in place in 2023!
These donations were made possible by designated gifts from Fidalgo Island neighbors. Congratulations to our honorees!
