Washington College Grant- Recent high school graduates and working-age adults from many low- and middle-income families can qualify to receive money for college or career training. WCG is available to eligible Washington residents, including undocumented students. An eligible student from a family of four making around $56,000 or less per year would receive a full award. Partial grants are available for families making up to the state’s median family income, around $102,000 per year. Visit the Washington Student Achievement Council website for more information.
CSS Profile- The College Scholarship Service Profile is an online application used by colleges and scholarship programs to award Institutional (their own) aid.
Financial Aid Calculator– This tool calculates potential awards from the Washington College Grant and Pell Grant Programs.
