Established by the Legislature in 2007, the College Bound Scholarship program provides financial assistance to low-income students who want to achieve the dream of a college education. This early promise of financial aid is intended to alleviate the financial barriers that prevent low-income students from considering higher education as a possibility.

College Bound Partnerships
The program is administered by the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC). WCAN supports Regional Officers who work with districts and schools on designing and implementing College Bound outreach and support strategies. Regional Officers help schools utilize the College Bound Scholarship to champion early awareness in middle schools and college readiness in high schools.
Both WSAC and WCAN work collaboratively with the K-12 system, state agencies, non-profit organizations and college-access groups to help students as they move through middle and high school.

The team offers workshops and workgroup sessions to provide assistance, tools and strategies for outreach and support. Regional officers partner with you to strategize on ways to develop sustainable and innovative systems that build a college going culture in your community.
