College Bound Applications

7th and 8th-grade parents, 

RMS GEAR UP and counselors would like to remind you and your students that college-bound applications are available to complete and return for submission. If your student has yet to turn one of these applications into either their school counselor or to a GEAR UP staff member, they should do so as soon as possible. 

We ask that even if your student does not qualify to receive the college bound scholarship, please mark the according box and return the form to Courtney Fajardo, or Ana Delgado. 

Your students College Bound Application can be picked up in the GEAR UP office at Royal Middle School either the parent or student. Below is what the application looks like. (Personal information has been crossed out)

A brief description of the College Bound Scholarship:

In 2007 the Washington State Legislature established the College Bound Scholarship. This program was created to provide state financial aid to low-income students who may not consider college a possibility due to the cost. The scholarship covers tuition (at comparable public college rates), some fees, and a small book allowance.

Eligibility for the scholarship is a two-part process. Students in 7th or 8th grade whose family meets the income requirements must submit and complete an application by June 30 of the student’s 8th-grade year. Then students must meet the College Bound Pledge requirements and income-eligibility as determined by the student’s financial aid application (FAFSA or WASFA) in their senior year of high school. 

Note: Foster youth in grades 7–12 (up to age 21) who have not graduated from high school are automatically enrolled. They are considered to have a complete application for the College Bound Scholarship via a data exchange between the Washington Student Achievement Council and the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS).
