There are many scholarship opportunities available for graduating seniors in addition to the WSPTA scholarship. Information about the WSPTA application can be found by clicking here including the link to the online application form.
OSPI has released information on a number of options and we have provided their websites listed below. Make sure you review the qualifications and the due dates.
- College Success Foundation: https://www.collegesuccessfoundation.org/wa/home
- Washington Student Achievement Council: http://www.wsac.wa.gov/sfa-overview
- The WashBoard.org: http://www.thewashboard.org/login.aspx
Some scholarship applications require that the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) be filled out.
This list represents only a small number of possible scholarships. We highly encourage students to talk with their guidance counselor and to do additional research. The U.S. Department of Education provides this site with lots of information about finding scholarships. And the U.S. Department of Labor provides a free scholarship search tool.
“Find and apply for as many scholarships as you can – it’s free money for college or career school! Start researching early, and meet deadlines, and you may be on your way to scholarship success.” – U.S. Department of Education
