The Whatcom Dream

New Scholarship Opportunity!

New Scholarship Opportunity available at Bellingham Technical College for Whatcom Dream Graduates!

Board Member Lynne Nelson and her wonderful husband Dave have donated $6,000.00 to be awarded to Whatcom Dream Graduates who attend BTC this Fall, Winter and Spring. Each quarter two candidates will be selected to receive $1,000.00 to help pay for the costs of their education at BTC. The $6,000.00 gift will be renewed annually.

The Nelson’s also started a similar scholarship fund at Whatcom Community College a few years ago. Helping someone pay for their education helps them propel forward in life in a way like no other. It is truly a gift from the heart. Thanks so much for your value of education and community Nelson’s! We appreciate your generosity immensely!

If you have any questions about the scholarship funds at WCC or BTC please call us at 360-319-3759. We look forward to hearing from you!
