  • The College Bound Scholarship

The College Bound Scholarship was established by the Legislature in 2007. The purpose of the program is to provide state-funded financial aid to low-income students who may not consider college a possibility because of the cost. Eligibility for the scholarship is a two-part process. First, students whose families are income-eligible must submit a complete application during 7th or 8th grade, and no later than June 30 of their 8th-grade year.

Second, students must complete the scholarship pledge requirements and meet income-eligibility guidelines as determined by colleges using data from the student’s FAFSA or WASFA in their senior year of high school. The scholarship covers tuition (at comparable public colleges), some fees, and a small book allowance.
