State Need Grant – access to education leads to success

shutterstock_439647085

Our friends in the College Promise Coalition share information about one of the most successful tools for providing access to higher education: the State Need Grant. Washington State’s successful student aid program, provides funding for low-and-middle income students to attend 66 higher education and career training institutions throughout the state. Currently this program serves 69,000 Washingtonians – but there is not enough funding to provide grants to over 24,000 additional eligible students. With 740,000 job openings projected over the next five years in our state, we must close this gap and fully fund the State Need Grant to help make sure that all Washington students have a chance at a postsecondary education – their future depends on it. Learn about the number of students served by the State Need Grant in your legislative district and importantly, how many students qualify for the grant, but are unable to receive funds to advance their education.

Check out your legislative district on pages 2 & 3 and discover how many students are enrolled in a post-secondary educational program through the assistance of the State Need Grant. Also learn how many students in your legislative qualify for the State Need Grant, but can’t attend due to the lack of state support for this proven program in expanding educational access.
