Financial Aid Opportunities

For AJAC Apprentices

AJAC | Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeships


Financial Aid may be available to assist active apprentices with the costs associated with their apprenticeship program. Some examples of these costs are things like tuition, fees, supplies, food, housing, and transportation to and from your related supplemental instruction classroom.

There are several types of financial aid that an apprentice may be eligible for depending on their circumstances.

Washington Grant for Apprentices

Emergency Assistance

Several of our partner colleges offer emergency grant funding if you find yourself in serious needs for things like food, housing, bills, vehicle repairs, or other emergency issues.

Each college has different guidelines on how to receive these funds and/or who is eligible for them, but if you find yourself in need, we strongly encourage you to submit an application and try to get the funding needed to keep emergency impediments from derailing your pursuit.
