Although undocumented students and DREAMers do not qualify for federal financial aid,
there are many other resources available to eligible undocumented students, including
state financial aid (WASFA), grant funds, and scholarships.
The Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) is a free application for non-citizens to apply for financial aid in Washington State. Upon successful completion of a WASFA, the college(s) you choose will use the information you provide to determine your eligibility to receive Washington State financial aid, including State Need Grant or State Work Study. Use the Eligibility Questionnaire on the WASFA website to determine if you should submit the WASFA.
The LWTech Foundation provides hardworking and highly motivated LWTech students with scholarships and emergency financial assistance, enabling them to pursue their academic and career goals. Undocumented students and DREAMers are eligible to apply for Foundation scholarships and/or emergency assistance. Additional information on the LWTech Foundation Scholarship page.
The Opportunity Grant Scholarship supports low-income students with educational training for careers in Business Technology, Health Care, Accounting programs, or I-Best programs. Students in the Opportunity Grant Scholarship program may receive tuition and fees for up to 45 credits, up to $1,000 per academic year for books and related supplies, and educational and career advising. Non-citizen students who are eligible for the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (WASFA) and meet the other eligibility requirements are encouraged to apply for the Opportunity Grant. Eligibility requirements and additional information is available on Opportunity Grant Scholarship page.
The Worker Retraining program offers tuition assistance, career counseling, advising, priority class registration, and other benefits to individuals in career transition such as laid-off workers, displaced homemakers, vulnerable workers, and formerly self-employed individuals.
