COVID-19 Resources for Opportunity Scholars

Washington has one of the fastest growing state economies with more trade, health care and STEM jobs than we can fill. The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship connects our state’s leading industries with top Washington talent by reducing barriers to education and training and facilitating entry into high-demand careers for Washington students.

Our first-of-its kind public-private partnership builds pathways into high-demand careers through our Baccalaureate and Career and Technical scholarship programs. Flexible financial aid funding, coupled with student support services and industry connections helps us launch low- and middle-income Washington students into Washington jobs.
