Previous awards continue to be funded
Please note that although the WAVE Scholarship has been in financial flux the past few years, previous monetary awards have been funded and will be honored.

The awards pay undergraduate educational tuition for two years (six quarters or four semesters) at an accredited public or private college or university, or licensed vocational school. The school must be in Washington. Students are reimbursed up to the amount of the highest tuition charged by a public university in the state.

If tuition is paid for through other means, the WAVE funds can be used to pay for other valid educational expenses, such as books, supplies, room, board, or transportation. The grant is based on undergraduate study only. The student must maintain a term grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 to continue using the award.

The Financial Award -- SUSPENDED
Although past awards are being honored, new WAVE monetary awards are NOT currently being issued.. Also, the recognition program is suspended.
