NEW THIS YEAR:  What is the Washington College Grant?

Each day in schools, you see how students’ lives are made easier or harder due to circumstance. You also know how challenging it is for a teacher to move the needle on a student’s grades and goals if that student can’t see a better future ahead. Well, here in Washington, educators have a new and very powerful tool in the bright-future toolbox: the Washington College Grant (WCG).

The new Washington College Grant is one of the most generous state financial aid programs in the nation, giving more money to more students for more kinds of education after high school. From welding to nursing, from English to computer science—whether one-year certificate or four-year college degree—the Washington College Grant can help students of all ages achieve their educational goals.

Learn about the Washington College Grant, financial aid applications, and more at wsac.wa.gov/pathways.
