  1. Complete the I AM OLYMPIC Profile Form.

  2. Complete a Letter of Recommendation Request. Save a copy on your drive. Complete the information about yourself and make multiple copies of the completed form. Identify and ask your counselor, teachers, coaches, or employers if they would be willing to give you a Letter of Recommendation for college. Provide at least two (2) those individuals a completed form.

  3. Book and appointment with Mrs. Bach or Mrs. Bartleson in the Career Center (CTE). CTE will help you with keeping your High School & Beyond profile updated with the most current awards/achievements and resume.

  4. Consider writing a 300-500-word Biography. Some colleges require an essay and often in the form of a biography. You have already started this process by completing your letter of recommendation form. Use that information to put in the form of an essay and keep it handy. Remember to save all of your essays.

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.

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).
