The Seafair Scholarship Program for Women is one of Seattle's most time-honored traditions. It is designed to give young women the opportunity to celebrate the rich diversity of the Puget Sound region and enrich their lives through education, philanthropy and community involvement. To become Miss Seafair, young women are judged on academics, public speaking, interview skills and creative expression. Seafair will award a record $20,000 in scholarships, recognizing outstanding young women in our community in 2013. Participants will also visit nearly 20 community events and festivals throughout the summer as well as hospitals and retirement facilities bringing Seafair to those who can't experience it on their own.

The Seafair Commodores have served as goodwill ambassadors for the city of Seattle and Seafair since 1955. The Commodores serve two specific purposes: promoting the Seafair Foundation Scholarship Program for Women and building relationships with community civic organizations around the Pacific Northwest. The Seafair Commodores assist and support the Scholarship Program for Women by providing escorts for Miss Seafair and her court during parades and special events. The proceeds from the Commodores fundraising activities go to the scholarship program.
