    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    Consider in-state tuition and tuition reciprocity 

    In-state tuition provides students with a lower cost compared to out-of-state tuition rates. Additionally, many universities and colleges reserve scholarships and financial aid for in-state students, which helps reduce the cost of attending college for those who live there.

    Here are a few well-known Washington universities and their in-state vs out-of-state tuition costs:

    Western Washington University

    • In-state tuition: $7,761
    • Out-of-state tuition: $25,668

    University of Washington

    • In-state tuition: $12,242
    • Out-of-state tuition: $40,740

    Washington State University

    • In-state tuition: $29,944
    • Out-of-state tuition: $45,628

    How do you get in-state tuition? 

    It is clear that in-state tuition is a cheaper option when compared to out-of-state tuition for Washington public institutions. So, how can you get Washington residency for in-state tuition purposes? In order to receive Washington residency, you must physically reside in the state of Washington for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the first day of the quarter that you are seeking residency for. Additionally, you must relinquish all valid legal ties with your former state of residence and create these legal ties with the state of Washington. This includes receiving a Washington driver’s license, registering your vehicle in Washington and registering to vote in Washington.

    In addition, students under the age of 24 are considered dependent for tuition purposes, unless they can show that they are financially independent from their parents or legal guardians. Therefore, if a student’s parents or legal guardians move to Washington and establish residency, the student may also be eligible for in-state tuition. 

    Does Washington have tuition reciprocity?

    Yes, Washington state does have tuition reciprocity.  Washington is a part of the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) which allows students to pay 150% of a state’s resident tuition which is usually significantly lower than full nonresident tuition.
