Previous awards continue to be funded
Please note that although the WAVE Scholarship has been in financial flux the past few years, previous monetary awards have been funded for the 2012-2013 school year and will be honored.
The awards pay undergraduate educational tuition for two years (six quarters or four semesters) at an accredited public or private college or university, or licensed vocational school. The school must be in Washington. Students are reimbursed up to the amount of the highest tuition charged by a public university in the state.
If tuition is paid for through other means, the WAVE funds can be used to pay for other valid educational expenses, such as books, supplies, room, board, or transportation. The grant is based on undergraduate study only. The student must maintain a term grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 to continue using the award.
The Financial Award -- SUSPENDED
Although past awards are being honored, new WAVE monetary awards are NOT being issued for 2011 and 2012. Also, the recognition program is suspended.
2011 WAVE Scholars
The Washington Award for Vocational Excellence (WAVE) selection committee selected 2011 WAVE scholars.
WAVE recognizes outstanding career and technical education students at high schools and community and technical colleges.
As with most other state programs, WAVE funding has been affected by the long-term recession. While there will be no NEW funding of scholarships, WAVE recipients are recognized by colleges, universities and employers as hard working, achievement-oriented leaders who excel both in school and outside the classroom. This award demonstrates they are among the best and brightest.
