Washington Scholarship Coalition
Making college possible, one person at a time.
TheWashBoard.org is committed to increasing access to scholarships and financial aid for Washington students.
Launched in 2010, theWashBoard.org, a free, web-based scholarship matching clearinghouse for Washington
residents and students, serves as a simple and central scholarship search and application resource.
In Washington state, there is no central clearinghouse
for scholarship access and data collection. Nationally, approximately $100 million in private scholarship assistance fails to get
distributed annually1 and private scholarships reach only seven percent of undergraduate
TheWashBoard.org goals include:
- Increase access to scholarships for Washington students, with an emphasis on low-income and underserved students
- Increase awareness of financial aid and scholarship opportunities
- Improve efficiencies in private scholarship application process
- Improve availability of data on private scholarships
- Create a high-quality, trusted, centralized resource
