The WWIN grant is the last funding source applied to tuition and book expenses, after all federal and private grants and scholarships. This means that women will only be eligible for WWIN funding if other grants and scholarships received do not fully cover costs of tuition and books. The WWIN Education Grant funds up to $5,000 over one year for low income women throughout the state of Washington and applicants are selected based on financial criteria, a balanced distribution among the schools, and the order in which the application was received. In order to apply, women must be enrolled in the school of their choice and have completed the federal financial aid (FAFSA) form. WWIN can fund any level of degree or vocational certification through a bachelor’s degree. In order to receive funding, students must maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average and be eligible for in-state tuition at accredited institutions. Education Assistance grant applications will be available on their website at http://www.wwin.org/. Check their website for quarterly application dates.
