Welcome to the Costco Scholarship Network

As recipients of the Costco Scholarship, students will become part of a "Costco Scholars Network." Through the Costco Scholars Network, students will have opportunities to create connections with other scholars, community leaders, and Costco Scholar alumni.

The Costco Scholars Network provides opportunities for professional formation and leadership skill development. These programs and experiences are offered in partnership between the Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA), the Career Engagement Office (CEO), and University Advancement. The staff from the aforementioned offices are committed to supporting the academic, personal/social, and cultural success of Costco Scholars.


About the Costco Scholarship Fund

In Fall of 2000, Costco joined forces with Seattle University and the University of Washington to create scholarships for underrepresented minority students. The Costco Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to high-achieving students who wish to attend SU or UW. The fund was created by the generous contributions of many individuals and organizations through an annual fundraising event sponsored by chief executives of Costco Wholesale. The Costco Scholarship Fund is administered by the College Success Foundation, a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. To date this program has generated almost 25 million dollars in scholarship support for more than 1,000 scholars.
