Low-income seventh and eighth grade students may begin the enrollment process for the College Bound Scholarship, a financial aid program for students and families worried about the cost of attending college. Eligible students sign a pledge promising to graduate from high school, maintain a 2.0 GPA and be good citizens. In exchange, the state of Washington pays for college tuition and books for up to four years, or until the student earns a bachelor’s degree.
The deadline to apply is June 30 of an eligible student’s eighth grade year.
