Scholarship Description

The Washington Scholars program recognizes the accomplishments of two high school students from each of the 49 state legislative districts. High school principals nominate the top 1 percent of the graduating class on the basis of academic achievement, leadership, and community service. A committee, composed of high school principals and college admissions staff, makes the final selection. Students can use the grants at any public or independent college or university in Washington.

To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:
* Be a Washington State resident;
* Be graduating from a Washington public or private
high school in the current award year
* Be enrolled at an eligible college or university following high school graduation
* Not be pursuing a postsecondary degree in theology

How to Apply
Contact your high school principal or guidance counselor for more information.
