Washington Scholarship Coalition:
The Washington Scholarship Coalition (WSC) is a public/private partnership of nine organizations committed to increasing access to scholarships and financial aid for Washington students. WSC's site the theWashboard.org is a free, web-based scholarship matching clearinghouse for Washington students. To utilize Washboard.org, a scholarship seeker sets up a personal profile listing academic interests, extracurricular experiences, and other relevant information. WashBoard.org then compares the seeker's profile with the criteria of available scholarships. Students may use Washboard.org to apply for multiple scholarships, reusing essays and other materials as needed.
