Established by the Legislature in 2007, the College Bound Scholarship program provides financial assistance to low-income students who want to achieve the dream of a college education. This early promise of financial aid is intended to alleviate the financial barriers that prevent low-income students from considering higher education as a possibility.

You must sign up for the scholarship as a 7th or 8th grade student and the family income must meet the guidelines or currently be in foster care. The deadline to sign up is June 30 of the students' 8th grade year.

The scholarship covers tuition (at comparable public colleges), some fees, and a small book allowance for 4 years.

Note: Foster youth in 7th to 12th grade, up to age 21, who have not graduated from high school, are automatically enrolled. They are considered to have a complete application for the College Bound Scholarship via a data exchange between the Washington Student Achievement Council and the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS).
