What services does WWIN provide?

WWIN empowers women in Washington State to achieve economic stability through higher education and living wage careers. Detailed information on our grants and Star Scholarship programs can be found on the WWIN Programs page.

Am I eligible to apply for a WWIN program?

Are you attending college or planning to enroll soon? Read more about Star Scholars eligibility criteria. If you meet the criteria for the program you’re interested in, you are encouraged to apply.

I think I’m eligible. How do I apply?
I submitted my application. How do I know if I’ve been selected?

We email all applicants to inform them of their status within six to eight weeks of the last day of the application window. (For example, if an application is open until October 31, we will typically notify applicants by December 31.)

How are the grants and scholarships disbursed?

Once WWIN has received and approved invoices for completed authorized services, WWIN pays the provider or educational institution directly.

Can I stop by the WWIN office for more information?

Unfortunately we’re a very small office and cannot handle walk-ins.

Where can I find other resources?

Washington 211 has the most comprehensive listing of health and human services and providers. Visit their website or dial 211 for more information. You can also contact the 24-hour crisis line at 866-4-CRISIS
(866-427-4747). In the case of an emergency, dial 911.

Can WWIN help me with housing, clothing, childcare, toys, or food assistance?

Unfortunately, WWIN cannot assist with these resources. We recommend that you contact Washington 211 for information on those types of services.
