The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) supports low- and middle-income students pursuing eligible high-demand majors in science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) or health care. The program encourages recipients to work in Washington State once they complete their degrees.If you are selected, you will receive $2,500 for 1-3 years, depending on how many quarters/semesters of college you had completed at the time of application. The amount of funding that selected students will be eligible to receive each year will vary based on the number of credits they have completed.
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.
