Washington Scholarships

Featuring more than a half-dozen state universities and dozens more private and community colleges, Washington is a great place for higher education. Scholarship opportunities are abundant as well, with programs funded by the state, private organizations and all of the colleges in Washington.

As the cost of attending school continues to climb, financial aid opportunities like these become even more crucial. These Washington scholarships might be a key component in funding your postsecondary education.

Popular Washington Scholarships

The Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB) coordinates the state’s colleges and universities. The HECB is also responsible for popular state-funded financial aid opportunities.

The State Need Grant is the most popular of these, with an average of 55,000 scholarships awarded annually. The HECB funds other need-based grants as well, such as the Washington State Educational Opportunity Grant.

HECB also sponsors merit awards like the Washington Scholars Program. Each year, about 470 Washington students receive this popular $2,700 scholarship.

Institutionally funded scholarships can be a very substantial source of financial aid. Seattle University’s Sullivan Award is nearly $30,000, and the Regents Scholarship at Washington State University gives a maximum award of $12,800.

Applying for Washington Scholarships

As you search for Washington scholarships to apply for, consider which criteria you might be suited for. For example, Washington students with Native American ancestry should look into the HECB’s American Indian endowed scholarship.

Other opportunities have specific residency requirements. An example is the George T. Welch Scholarship, a need-based award granted to Walla Walla High School graduates.
