The Role of State Funds
Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Washington Center’s goal is for students to attend its programs at a cost comparable to what the student would pay for a semester at their home institution. State scholarships play an integral role in this process, especially with public university and college students.

TWC’s staff works diligently with each student to understand the funding criteria and scholarships available to them. The first opportunity is for state colleges and universities to waive tuition for the semester or forward students’ tuition (less administrative fees) to The Washington Center. When state institutions allow for these kinds of tuition arrangements, students are freed from an additional financial burden of studying in Washington.

State Relations Initiatives play a critical role in students’ ability to enroll in The Washington Center’s unique program. State scholarships provide for program fees to help make the experience much more affordable, creating more opportunities for students who may struggle to pay for their education.
