WENATCHEE- From Moses Lake to Wenatchee, the future of a select group of local students looks brighter after several school districts in north-central Washington received $1.8 million in scholarships. The funds were granted to 83 students through the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS). The money is going to local students who are pursuing STEM and health care degrees in Washington state.

WSOS prepares Washington students for jobs in the state by lowering hurdles for low-and-middle-income students who are pursuing high-demand science, technology engineering, math (STEM) or health care degrees at eligible Washington state colleges and universities. Each student is getting as much as $22,500 in scholarship dollars, as well as mentorship and professional development.
