To be eligible, applicants must be residents of the Arlington, Stanwood or Camano Island areas, or they must be graduates of the Arlington, Lakewood, Stanwood or Lincoln Hill high schools.

Applicants must have completed at least two years of college by June of this year, and have verifiable plans to continue upper-division or graduate work at an accredited four-year institution in the fall of 2012.
