The College Bound Scholarship is a commitment of financial aid by the state of Washington to eligible low-income students who sign up in middle school and fulfill a set of basic requirements by the end of high school. Eligible College Bound Students who fulfil the scholarship requirements are awarded in-state tuition for up to four years at one of 66 public and private colleges, universities, and industry training programs.
