The grants, totaling up to $10,000, are awarded to students attending the five Bellevue School District high schools.

Of the total, $5,000 is funded by contributions from all of the BSD PTSAs, including all elementary and middle schools, even though scholarship recipients can only be high school students. The second amount of to $5,000 is donated by the Hurd Foundation, in memory of Alice Hurd, who was a past Bellevue PTSA Council President, as well as a past President of Sammamish PTSA, Odle Middle School and Cherry Crest Elementary.
