Scholarship Program Overview
Washington State PTA (WSPTA) offers four $2,500 scholarships to graduating seniors from Washington state public high schools with an active PTA, who will be starting college (either two-year or four-year) in the fall.
Upon receiving proof of acceptance to college, WSPTA will issue a check to the school the recipient will be attending. The scholarship may be used to offset the cost of tuition, books, supplies, room and/or board.
- Current and verified GPA of at least 3.4 (on a scale of 4.0)
- The name and number of the PTA/PTSA at your school
- At least three volunteer activities
- Answer the essay question: “How has volunteering within my community helped me today and into the future?”
Students may submit a scholarship application through the online form. We encourage students to apply even if they have not decided on which specific college (either two-year or four-year) they will be attending. If the student is selected as a scholarship recipient, we will verify the enrollment status prior to distributing the funds.
The application deadline for the 2022-2023 year has closed. The 2023 Essay, Game Development and Scholarship Awards Celebration will be on April 24, from 6:30 – 8:00 PM.
The 2022-2023 scholarship recipients are located on the Student Showcase page.
