Stimson Bullitt Civic Courage Scholarship

The Seattle Public Library Foundation is pleased to host the Stimson Bullitt Civic Courage Scholarship competition. High school seniors and undergraduate students who live, work, or attend school in Seattle are invited to participate.

The competition asks students to write an essay about an individual or group of individuals from Washington state who have demonstrated civic courage on an issue of importance to the community at great personal, political or professional risk.

The 2021 contest is now open! Apply now! The deadline for submissions is Monday, March 15, 2021.

Historically the applicant pool for this competition is relatively small. With three awards available, the chances of winning are high!
