Washington State Governors' Scholarship for Foster Youth

The Washington State Governors' Scholarship for Foster Youth is a scholarship program that helps young men and women from foster care continue their education and earn a college degree. Eligible students must meet specific criteria. The program has been supported by the current and former governors in Washington State. Proceeds from the Governors' Cup – an annual golf tournament – provide funding for approximately 40 - 50 new scholars each year. Scholarship award amounts range from $2,000 to $4,000 depending on the college of attendance. The scholarship can be accessed for up to five years to complete an undergraduate study. Students must be enrolled full time and maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to renew the scholarship each year.
