WHO offers several scholarships available to our WHO members We understand that everyone’s homeschooling journey is unique and take that into consideration when choosing scholarship winners.

College Scholarship Opportunity
for Washington Homeschoolers

Washington Homeschool Organization is pleased to provide the Scholarships for Washington State Homeschoolers. This scholarship competition is perfect for your family.

It’s money for College

If your homeschooled student intends to go to college, they could win up to $1,000, thanks to Washington Homeschool Organization & Homeschoolers’ Support Association.

It’s perfect for you

The WHO Scholarships are for members of WHO that have filed a Declaration of Intent to Homeschool and are graduating in 2023. We recognize that many homeschoolers utilize Running Start in high school, so providing the Declaration of Intent for the year prior to Running Start is just fine.

It values every teaching style

The scholarships understand that every homeschool is unique. Just submit your parent-made homeschool transcript or other homeschool record.

It’s easy to apply

The student needs to submit a brief essay on the benefits of homeschooling. The parents submit the student’s transcript or homeschool record. The family completes a very short application form.

The idea that anyone would voluntarily do more math than strictly necessary seemed ridiculous.

Growing up, I have always loved serving other people. Whether it be watching kids during church meetings or bringing mail to elderly neighbors, it gave me joy to help them out. I would say that being homeschooled has opened up extra opportunities of this nature. In fact, I would even say that serving my community has been a vital part of my homeschool education.
