New Leaf and Jo Balda
Scholarships

Every year New Leaf awards the New Leaf scholarship and the Jo Balda scholarship to deserving seniors enrolled in high school in Whidbey Island, Washington.

Past winners have gone to colleges and universities around the country and majored in everything from engineering to communications to pre-med. The common threads are their commitment to community service and their desire to pursue higher education in service of their goals. 


The New Leaf scholarship emphasizes service to people with disabilities and people struggling to live independently.  The Jo Balda scholarship, named in honor of longtime New Leaf board member Jo Balda, awards those whose career goals closely align with community service.
