Behind The Scenes: CBF Distribution Committee Meeting
Every year, the CBF Distribution Committee meets to review scholarship applications for the coming academic year. The process begins with narrowing down the selections based on the criteria set forth by the donor of the funds, until a full list of recipients has been established.
CBF board members Sylvia Hammond, Tom Overcast, Mary Frederick, and Huc Dilling (pictured above) were joined by Ephrata High School counselor Rhonda Hagy. They reviewed 469 applications from students representing schools from Almira-Coulee-Hartline, Connell, Curlew, Ephrata, Lind-Ritzville, Moses Lake, Othello, Quincy, Soap Lake, and four regional scholarships.
Columbia Basin Foundatio awarded nearly $120,000 in scholarships for the 2017/2018 academic year. We love seeing this number grow over the years due to the efforts of our generous donors.
Scholarship awards will be mailed directly to the college, university or technical school by late July.
