This scholarship aims to raise the hopes and aspirations of 7th and 8th grade students from low-income families. The most direct way to identify these students is to reach out to those who are eligible for free and reduced-price lunch.
College Bound is a state education program; therefore, schools may target eligible students (see OSPI’s Disclosure of Free and Reduced Price Information Agreement).
Broad, all-school efforts that encourage students to continue their education beyond high school also can include information about College Bound.
Typically, any discussion about college will cover ways to pay for college – loans, grants, scholarships, etc. By describing College Bound as one more option for students, you can spread the word about the program.
