Making education more accessible for driver-partners like you

September 25, 2017 / Seattle

South Seattle College serves a multicultural population of around 15 thousand students each year on their campuses in West Seattle and Georgetown. We are thrilled to work with the school to create opportunities for drivers and their families to advance their education in the 2017 – 2018 school year.

We’ve created a scholarship program through the South Seattle College Foundation for up to 3 quarters of pre-paid tuition. If you can picture yourself or one of your family members in the classroom, here’s your opportunity to apply!
