Background

The Nan Campbell Scholarship, administered by the Bellevue Schools Foundation, is awarded each year to four Sammamish High School students, $1,000 each who embody the leadership spirit of Nan Campbell, Bellevue’s first female mayor whose thoughtfulness and concern for others led to a long and broad contribution to human services and community activism.

Following her death in 2016, Campbell’s longtime friend Suzy Mygatt Wakefield, established the scholarship fund to help Sammamish High school graduates advance on their education, and to inform Bellevue young people about the difference one person can make while keeping Nan’s memory alive.

To apply for the scholarship, send your completed application to christy@bsfdn.org.  Application deadline is May 13, 2020.
