The Alternative Routes to Certification Scholarship program is designed to help school districts recruit teachers in subject matter and geographic areas with a teacher shortage. In return for conditional loan scholarships, participants agree to teach in specified subject shortage areas in Washington K-12 public schools.
The Washington Professional Educator Standards Board determines the shortage areas, selects the recipients, and administers the program. The Washington Student Achievement Council serves as the fiscal agent for the program.
