Get Money for College or Job Training With Washington College Grant

Washington College Grant (WCG) gives more money to more people for more kinds of education and training beyond high school. WCG is not reserved for valedictorians or athletes—it is available to all eligible Washington residents, including undocumented students. If you meet the residency and income requirements, you have money waiting for you.

Washington College Grant can help you access many types of education and training: 

  • Public and private colleges and universities
  • Workforce and training programs
  • Approved apprenticeship programs

WCG amounts vary based on income, family size, and program cost. An eligible student from a family of four with income of $56,000 or less per year would get a full award. What does that mean? For example, public college tuition would likely be free for a family with three children and a single parent making $25 per hour. For middle-income families, grant amounts are lower. But even someone from a family of four making up to $102,000 per year can get some money to help pay for college or training.

Students and families can use the financial aid calculator to estimate their potential WCG award, but the only way to know for sure whether you qualify is to apply for financial aid. Applications for the 2022-23 academic year are now open.
