Spread over the three cities of Bothell Seattle, and Tacoma in the state of Washington, the University of Washington is home to some of the most beautiful capuses in the United States. A mild climate, solid infrastructure, and spectacular geography make studying at the institution is very attractive. Given that not every existing or prospective students has the financial means to fully support themselves, the university has come up with several forms of academic scholarships, college grants, and other types of financial support. For simplicity, only educational grants will be considered. The university has historically provided over USD 200 million in grants to its students. Six such forms of student grants exist.
Federal Pell Grants are available, for undergraduate students, and are the greatest source of money for college through educational grants. A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be sent, and the eventual aid granted is based on the student’s Expected Family Contribution.
Federal Supplemental Grants, as the name implies, serve to supplement the previous student grant. They are for students with low family contributions.
State Need Grants are funded by the state government. They are for students with great financial need, but are only available to residents of Washington state.
Tuition Exemption and University Grants are only available to students on fee-based programs. There is a very wide range of programs, focused primarily in postgraduate programs. This opens up options for those looking to pursue a masters degree.
Child of Deceased or Disabled Washington Law Enforcement Officer or Fire Fighter Tuition Exemption is what it sounds like. Any child of a officer of the law or fire fighter who died while serving the state of Washington is entitled to a partial reduction in tuition fess for undergraduate programs.
Finally comes the The Teacher Education Assistance for College and higher Education (Teach) Grant Program, which is an educational grant for students training to teach t a school for low-income students in a highly demanded field. A separate application must be filled in. One must bear in mind that if the student does not teach as agreed upon, the grant for education is converted into a loan.
