Mt. Baker Scholarship at Western Washington University
Our longevity in Bellingham has encouraged a special connection with the accounting department at Western Washington University. This connection provides you the opportunity for help in underwriting your pursuit of an accounting degree.
The Larson Gross annual $1,600 scholarship is awarded through the Western Washington University Foundation. To qualify, students must be a junior or senior with a declared accounting major or a master’s student with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Preference is given to students from Whatcom or Skagit Counties who have expressed an interest in establishing a career in Northwest Washington.
Applications are due in March, and the winner is chosen by a committee composed of Western Washington University faculty and staff.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about any of the scholarships we offer.
