Washington College Grant

The Washington College Grant provides guaranteed college funding to all eligible residents of Washington State, including low- and middle-income students.

What is the Washington College Grant?

The Washington College Grant guarantees that eligible Washington students will receive the full award that they qualify for and all eligible students will be served. Based on your eligibility, the grant will cover all (or some) of the cost of tuition and state-mandated fees. As a grant, this is “free money” and does not need to be paid back.

How Do I Get Started?

Getting started is as easy as applying for Financial Aid. The Financial Aid department then works with you and determines your eligibility. There is not a separate application required for the Washington College Grant. Financial aid applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are now open, but it is not too late to apply for 2021-2022.

If you are not eligible for federal financial aid, due to immigration status, you should complete the WASFA.

How Much Grant Money Will I Get?

The award is dependent on your personal situation, but a family of four with a median family income of $56,000 or less will receive a full financial aid award that covers the full cost of tuition plus state-mandated fees. A middle-income family of four making up to about $102,000 will qualify for a partial award.

Essentially, families can make more money and still qualify for financial aid.
