The Tacoma (WA) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated Scholarship applications are available online on our chapter website (www.tacomalinksinc.com). Its primary function is to provide financial assistance for graduating high school seniors who want to pursue their college education further. The scholarships are available for high school students of African descent. Some of the qualifications for the scholarship include a minimum GPA of 2.7, involvement in community and school programs, full-time enrollment after high school into college during the Fall Quarter, and applicants must reside in the greater Puget Sound area (Pierce County, Federal Way, Olympia, and Kitsap County). Several of our scholarship recipients continued to apply for scholarship funds throughout their college journey. Students have shared beautiful stories with us regarding the positive impact of the scholarship during their college careers.
