10 years of impact

We support Washington students on a path to high-demand trade, STEM and health care credentials in Washington state through certificate, degree and apprenticeship programs. We create a college-to-career pipeline for those who are often furthest from opportunities in these fields, including women, students of color and first-generation students. Here's a look at what we've been up to in our first decade as WSOS.


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.
