Washington College Grant
The Washington College Grant (WCG, formerly the State Need Grant) is one of the most generous financial aid programs in the country. Recent high school graduates and working-age adults from many low- and middle-income families can qualify to receive money for college or career training.
Grants can be used for:
- Community and technical colleges
- Public four-year colleges and universities
- Many private two- and four-year colleges and career schools
- Approved apprenticeship programs
As of fall 2020, income thresholds have increased, leading more low- and middle-income families to qualify, and funding is now guaranteed to eligible students. Award amounts vary based on income, family size, and the school or program attended.
