Applications for the 2008 Wave Scholarship are now available.



The Award

Recipients of this annual tuition award receive monetary grants, based on availability of funds, to pay undergraduate educational tuition expenses for two years (six quarters or four semesters) at a Washington State institution of higher education, an accredited Washington State independent college or university, or a licensed private vocational school. If tuition is paid for through other means, the WAVE funds can be used to pay for other valid educational expenses, such as books, supplies, room, board, or transportation. The grant is based on undergraduate study only. The student must maintain a term grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 to continue using the award..
