Berentson Family Scholarship

The Duane and JoAnne Berentson Family have created a new scholarship that will be available this spring to graduating seniors from both Burlington-Edison High School and Burlington North.  This is a fantastic new scholarship opportunity! The applicants for this scholarship will have to be attending a community college or trade/technical school in Skagit, Whatcom or Snohomish counties; be pursuing a degree or certificate in a trade or technical field of study; have a minimum high school cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; and have been an active participant in school and/or community activities while attending high school.  The best news of all is that this scholarship will be awarded to TWO students in the amount of $5,000 each for the first year and be renewable for an additional $5,000 for a second year!!


Eric Stubben and Jansen Vandermeulen, B-EHS graduates in the class of 2012 and lifelong friends who grew up on Avon-Allen Road in Burlington have been fortunate to have found success in life and have chosen to pay it forward to their alma mater in the form of a scholarship!  This scholarship will be awarded for the first time to a graduating senior in the class of 2020.  The amount will be $3,000 for a student attending an accredited 4 year college/university.  These funds will be awarded over  two years with $1500 paid out each year.  The applicant must have a high school GPA of 3.2 or higher.  Other preferences for this recipient would be a demonstrated work history; community and school involvement with demonstrated leadership roles.  Eric and Jansen are also looking for students that have had to overcome some difficult obstacles/situations in their lives.  We are excited and grateful to Eric and Jansen for their desire to give back to these students while they understand the great need out there for furthering your education but the financial burden that can be an obstacle too making that happen.

 Class of 2000

 The alumni of the Class of 2000 are establishing a scholarship fund for B-E graduating seniors with the first scholarships being awarded to the Class of 2020!  This alumni group recognizes the need to help graduates with the cost of furthering their education.  With this goal in mind, they will be funding (2) Two $500 scholarships this year (2020) with the goal to continue to fund raise to be able to continue to award additional scholarships and to increase the dollar amount.


Aaron Frey was a gifted child who loved to read from a very early age and loved opera all of his life. Aaron had a very difficult childhood with parents who divorced when he was very young, and for a time was homeless with his mother and brothers.  Life afterwards was hard and despite his intelligence he did not graduate from high school, only later getting a GED.  Despite the adversities in his life, Aaron made friends easily and everyone loved him.  He was brilliant, funny and hard working.  Aaron passed away in 2016 and his family wants to honor his memory by establishing this scholarship fund.  They want to help a person like him get the education he wasn't able to get. They are looking for recipients that love books, reading, and possibly a student who has had to deal with homelessness, poverty or other adversity.
