Your Child Can Go to College for Free
Washington middle school students who dream of going to college but worry their families won’t be able to afford it, have a new promise from the state: Work hard in school, keep your grades up, stay out of trouble, and a four-year scholarship may be yours.
The College Bound Scholarship offers an incentive for students and families who otherwise might not consider college to be an option because of the cost. The scholarship covers college tuition, fees and books for students from low-income families who sign a pledge in 7th or 8th grade promising to graduate from high school and demonstrate good citizenship, and is guaranteed for students who meet the eligibility criteria.
Please find out more and apply either online through the HECB website at: www.hecb.wa.gov/collegebound, or by requesting an application from our school.
