    College and Technical School Scholarships

    Washington State Opportunity Scholarship

    The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) was created in 2011 to address unfilled seats in the high-demand sectors that drive our economy like aerospace, engineering, technology and health care as well as rising tuition costs at Washington colleges and universities.

    Businesses and the Washington State Legislature joined forces to fulfill the promise of better education and career opportunities for Washington students. Together they have created a unique public-private partnership, with significant support from founding partners Boeing and Microsoft and matching dollars from the State.

    This first-of-its-kind program supports Washington students from low- and middle-income households to attain bachelor’s degrees in high-demand fields including science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and health care through scholarships of up to $22,500 as well as professional development, skills-building workshops and genuine industry exposure to help increase the rate at which students enter our state's workforce.


    Scholarship Information: The Washington Association of Career and Technical Administrators awards up to five scholarships for graduating Washington State high school seniors. Awards highlight students who have distinguished themselves in the field of Career and Technical Education during high school. The scholarship committee will review entries and select up to five winners. Each will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Submit applications to the WACTA Scholarship Chair as a single PDF file.
