    Scholarship Overview

    The Governors’ Scholarship for Foster Youth Program is open to Washington state residents who will be enrolling in college for the upcoming Fall semester and who have been placed in Foster Care, Guardianship, or Dependency Guardianship by a Washington state court order. Applicants can also qualify if they have been placed in federally-recognized care as an unaccompanied minor and have legal permanent residency in the United States, or if they have been placed under a dependency tribal court order outside of their home.
