WSOS supports Washington students on their path to high-demand trade, STEM and health care occupations. With the help of our promotional partners, WSOS hopes to reach all eligible students, notify them of the opportunities available to them and ensure they have the support they may need to apply for the scholarships and support services we offer.
WSOS offers two scholarships for students on different academic pathways. The Baccalaureate Scholarship is designed to support students who intend to earn a bachelor’s degree. The Career and Technical Scholarship (CTS) is for individuals who intend to earn a certificate, apprenticeship or associate credential from a community or technical college. Both scholarships support Washington residents of any age, no matter how they’ve earned their high school credential.
This page contains materials to provide our promotional partners with the information needed to successfully promote our Scholarship programs in their schools, organizations and communities.
Train the Trainer
Train the Trainer sessions are designed to provide an overview of our scholarship and review eligibility criteria. Attendees will learn how to navigate the scholarship application portals to support students in completing their applications. We encourage anyone who works directly with eligible students and is interested in learning about the scholarship to join.
