The College Bound Scholarship provides hope and incentive for students and families who otherwise might not consider college as an option because of its cost. Low-income 7th and 8th grade students who sign a pledge by June 30 of their 8th grade year are eligible. Students promise to graduate from high school, demonstrate good citizenship, and seek admission to a college or university. Family income will be re-checked and college admission confirmed after the student graduates from high school.
The amount of the scholarship will be based on tuition rates at Washington public colleges and universities and will cover the amount of public college and university tuition and fees (plus $500 for books) not covered by other state financial aid awards. College Bound Scholarship recipients attending Seattle Pacific University will receive an award amount “equivalent to the representative average of awards granted to students in public research” campuses; therefore the amount varies year to year and will be determined by late-Spring.
