The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) builds pathways into high-demand Washington careers for Washington students.
Washington has one of the fastest growing state economies with more trade, health care and STEM jobs than we can fill. WSOS aims to connect 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. Working collaboratively with the state and industry partners, we launch low- and middle-income students into careers, maximizing the return on investment for the state and ensuring our state’s robust economy can continue to thrive.
WSOS provides students with two pathways to high-demand Washington jobs: Our Baccalaureate Scholarship is for Scholars pursuing a bachelor’s degree in a STEM or health care field. The new Career and Technical Scholarship (CTS) is for Scholars pursuing a degree or certificate in a high-demand trade, health care or STEM field such as nursing, welding, or information technology.
Flexible financial aid funding, coupled with student support services and industry connections helps us launch low- and middle-income Washington students into Washington jobs.
