WVC Foundation receives $17,000 for scholarships from NAPMW


The Wenatchee Valley College Foundation received $17,000 from the Wenatchee Valley chapter of the National Association of Professional Mortgage Women (NAPMW) for scholarships. The funds will directly impact Wenatchee Valley College students with financial need.

“We are extremely proud to give back to the community. Our members support the needs of WVC students and strive to make their educational journey a success,” said Lorena Urrutia, NAPMW board member. “WVC students that receive scholarship funding can use it for their cost of attendance, not just tuition.”

The Wenatchee Valley College Foundation provided over $645,000 in scholarships during the 2022-23 academic year. Students can use the funding for cost of living, childcare, tuition, books, fees, and other costs associated with attending WVC.

“NAPMW has been an incredible partner in fulfilling the WVC Foundation’s mission to provide equitable access to education. Scholarships provided by our generous donors directly support students on their journey,” shared Rachel Evey, WVC Foundation executive director. “Scholarship funding can make a significant impact on a student’s completion of their degree or program.”
