Washington Student Achievement Council
June 30th  is the deadline to apply for the College Bound Scholarship for 8th grade students. The scholarship is a state financial aid program designed to provide income eligible students the state financial aid to cover the cost of tuition at public college rates, some fees and a small book allowance. Students can use the scholarship at over 60 colleges across Washington. 
If you have started an application, it is considered complete when the student and parent sign and verify income on a Missing Information Letter (MIL). These letters are yellow forms that are mailed home, or sent home by the school and must be completed before students begin 9th grade. 
If you have any questions, please contact our office by phone at 1(888)535-0747 Option 1, or email . You can also find more information online here.
