Scholarships for our community.
The Funhouse is proud to administer four college scholarships funded by the Daniel & Margaret Carper Foundation, the Henigson Family, Pichu Fund, and Realtors of Orcas Island. We are honored that these very generous donors have entrusted The Funhouse with the important task of helping Orcas Island’s college-bound students achieve their dreams!
Funhouse Commons Scholarship
On behalf of the Daniel and Margaret Carper Foundation, Funhouse Commons is honored to annually award a college scholarship of up to full tuition for a 2-year or 4-year Washington state public school to one or more graduates of Orcas Island High School. This scholarship is for students who demonstrate a determination to succeed, a passion for their education, and are committed to completing college directly after high school.
The Funhouse College Scholarship Program is structured so the scholarship recipient will be awarded funds each year of college, subject to the enrollment and performance standards
Henigson Family Scholarship
As part of our commitment to education and on behalf of Bob & Phyllis Henigson, the Funhouse Commons will award an annual college scholarship of up to $32,000 for a four-year college or university to one graduate of Orcas Island High School. This scholarship is for students who do not have the resources to finance their education without financial support. The student selected will also, in the words of Robert Henigson, “demonstrate real motivation to receive a higher degree.”
The Pichu Scholarship, on behalf of Jeremy & Angela Foster, is a one-time $1,000 scholarship awarded to a Latinx graduating student from Orcas Island High School. This scholarship is intended to support further education at Community College, 4 year college, Accredited Trade School, Accredited Agricultural School or a bonafide apprenticeship, or a professional training program.
Realtors of Orcas Island
The Realtors of Orcas Island scholarship is a one-time $3,000 scholarship awarded to a well-rounded student who uses their time to contribute to their community via care and volunteer efforts. This scholarship is intended to support further education at a community college, 4 year college, accredited trade school, or other qualified school.
