COLLEGE BOUND SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The state of Washington has a program for eligible families that will help pay for most or all of their child’s college. This is called the College Bound Scholarship program (CBS). All Middle Schools in Kent are having all eligible students fill out applications. Students are only allowed to apply in the 7th and 8th grades. Students will continue to be eligible if their family meets certain financial guidelines when the student starts their senior year, and if the student has a GPA of 2.0 (‘C’ average). The Kent School District has notified us as to who is eligible at this point and time.
For more information, please check out their website: www.hecb.wa.gov/collegebound or follow this link to see their Question and Answer page: http://www.wsac.wa.gov/sites/default/files/CBS_12-13_QA.pdf
Mattson’s College Bound Scholarship coordinator is Katy Ranzoni, Counselor.
