Scholarship Description

The Educational Opportunity Grant (EOG) program provides $2,500 grants to financially needy, placebound Washington residents as an incentive to complete a bachelor's degree at an eligible four-year college. Students must have already earned an associate of arts or sciences degree or achieved junior class standing.

Students who meet the following criteria will be considered for the grant:
* Have placebound circumstances. The program defines placebound as having personal barriers, such as family or employment commitments, health concerns, financial inability, or other similar factors, that make it difficult to continue an education at a four-year college. In general, placebound students either have to relocate or are unable to relocate to attend college due to personal barriers.
* Be a Washington resident.
* Have at least junior standing before your first term of enrollment at an eligible four-year college - by either completing an associate of arts or sciences degree, or earned credits.
* Have financial need, as determined by the financial aid office at the college you plan to attend.
* Be a junior or senior transfer student. You cannot receive EOG to continue at your current college.
