$ For College

As forms of “gift aid,” grants provide free money for college that you will not have to repay. Grants generally come from three main sources: the federal government, state government, and institutions (your college or university). While some grants require students to meet specific criteria in order to receive them, most grants offered by the state or federal government are awarded based solely on financial need. 

Washington State Grants

Washington State Need Grant: The State Need Grant (SNG) program helps the state’s lowest-income undergraduate students pursue degrees, hone skills, or retrain for new careers. Students can use the grants at eligible institutions in Washington.

Passport for Foster Youth: The Passport to College Promise Scholarship program helps students from foster care prepare for and succeed in college.

Opportunity Grant: The Opportunity Grant helps low-income adults train for high-wage, high-demand careers.

Federal Grants

The federal government provides grant funds for students attending colleges, career schools, and universities. For more information on several major federal grant programs, visit the U.S. Department of Education's Student Aid site.
