Is your son or daughter heading off to college next year? Looking for a little relief from rising tuition costs? The Washington Counties Scholarship Fund knows that every little bit helps.

The Washington Counties Scholarship Fund is now accepting applications for the 2019/20 academic year. The fund awards up to five $3,000 scholarships to eligible children of county employees and county elected officials.

Recipients must be full-time students in a baccalaureate degree, associate degree, or vocational/technical certification program.

Funds for the scholarship are provided by members of the Washington Association of County Officials (WACO). Since 1993 the fund has awarded over $270,000 to eligible students.

Please note: the scholarship program is under review and that the number and award amount of scholarships may change without notice
