College Bound Scholarship
The College Bound Scholarship was established by the Legislature in 2007. The purpose of the program is to provide state-funded financial aid to low-income students who may not consider college a possibility because of cost. Eligibility for the scholarship is a two part process. First, students whose families are income-eligible must submit a complete application during grade 7 or 8, and no later than June 30 of their eighth-grade year. Second students must complete the scholarship pledge requirements and meet income-eligibility guidelines as determined by colleges using data from the student's FAFSA or WASFA in their senior year of high school.

The scholarship covers tuition (at comparable public colleges), some fees, and a small book allowance.
