College Bound Scholarship/Whitworth Bound Scholarship
  • Description:

    The College Bound Scholarship program is an early commitment of state financial aid to eligible students who sign up in middle school.  To be eligible, students must sign up for the program while in middle school, graduate from a Washington high school or home school with a 2.0 GPA or higher, be a good citizen and not be convicted of a felony, and apply to an eligible college and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in a timely manner.  They must also have a family income that falls within 65% of the state’s median family income.

    The amount of the scholarship is based on tuition and an allowance for books at a public university and is covered through a combination of funding through the College Bound Scholarship, Washington State Need Grant, Passport to College Promise and Opportunity Scholarship. While an allowance for books is used in determining the amount of the scholarship, at Whitworth the full scholarship is applied to tuition and room and board costs, so there is not a separate amount set aside for books.

    If you are eligible for the College Bound Scholarship and attend Whitworth University, you can also receive the Whitworth Bound Scholarship which entitles you to 100 percent of your Whitworth tuition covered during your four years of enrollment! Just apply for admission to Whitworth University and submit your FAFSA to be automatically considered.

    Whitworth Bound students receive:

    • Full tuition, covered by federal, state, and Whitworth grant and scholarship aid
    • Four-year commitment to cover your tuition, as long as you meet the College Bound scholarship requirements each year.
    • Other traditional financial aid resources to help cover room and board, as well as books (e.g., work study, loans)
