Sub Pop’s 2017 Loser Scholar Scholarship

Sub Pop Records in Seattle, WA is offering a grand total of $15,000 worth of college scholarship money to three eligible high school seniors. There are three scholarships—one for $7,000, one for $5,000 and one for $3,000. As longtime and proud losers ourselves, we’re exceedingly happy to be able, in some small way, to help further the education of art-enthused misfits from the NW. Applicants must be a resident of Washington or Oregon, and a graduating senior on your way to full-time enrollment at an accredited university or college. We are looking for applicants who are involved and/or interested in music and/or the creative arts in some way. However, you do not need to be pursuing an education in the arts.

To apply you must submit an essay, one page or less, using any combination of the following questions as a guide (or write something completely your own, be inspired and creative!). Please list the school you are graduating from and the school you plan to attend in the fall at the top of your essay along with your contact information.  Deadline is March 22, 2017 | Sub Pop's Loser Scholar Scholarship Application pdf icon

Ballard Seniors You are making progress towards all of you completing the FAFSA ( but several of you still have NOT! 56.5% of you have completed it…this is still less than the amount of seniors who have completed it at Roosevelt and Garfield.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid must be completed by EVERY student who intends to apply to ANY college/university. You can complete it at and will need information from your parents. If you have any questions come see Ms. Flanagan in the Counseling Center between 9-1 each day. Each college has a finite amount of financial aid- you want to submit your financial aid documents NOW so that you can get some of that aid.

Most of the large Washington public universities have priority Financial Aid deadlines of 1/31 and 2/1 (University of Washington was on 1/15!). This means that in order to get the most financial aid possible, you need to complete and submit your FAFSA before those dates. 

For a full list of deadlines, look at the FAFSA thermometer outside the main office. See Ms. Flanagan in the Counseling Center with questions.

FAFSA Application Information

On September 14, 2015, significant changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process were announced that will affect millions of students. You can read more and get the link to the online application on the Federal Student Aid website.
