General Information

Financial assistance for college comes primarily from four sources: the colleges themselves, the government, national and regional scholarships, and local scholarships. The Port Angeles community has one of the most successful local scholarship programs in the nation, awarding about $450,000 a year to graduates. There are scholarships for students planning to attend technical colleges, vocational colleges, community colleges and four-year colleges.

Port Angeles High School also helps students access regional and national scholarships. The Counseling office maintains a file of scholarship applications which are available for students to pick up anytime.

The federal and state government offer grants and loans, mostly based on financial need. Families complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in early October. The high school partners with Peninsula College to hold a workshop each year to explain these government programs.

The largest amount of scholarships are awarded by the colleges themselves. College catalogs and web sites have specific information on their offerings. High school juniors should get help from the College Success Foundation Representative or their Counselor to develop a list of potential schools of interest. Scholarship offerings are one factor to consider when deciding where to apply.
