Financial Aid for AJAC Apprentices

Learn About The Financial Aid Opportunities for AJAC Apprentices

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, 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. AJAC encourages apprentices to speak to their college financial aid office and our financial aid manager, Leo Vogel, to find out if there is any assistance available.

The Washington College Grant

One type of financial aid that you don’t need to speak to your college about is the Washington College Grant for Apprentices. This grant is processed through AJAC – meaning your application is submitted to and, if you are eligible, you are awarded through AJAC support. Apprentices eligible for the Washington College Grant may be able to receive up to $2,500 per academic year in grant funding.

  • You have been a Washington Resident for over 1 year
  • You do NOT already have a bachelors degree
  • You are an active apprentice, currently employed, and attending classes for your RSI
  • You meet the financial requirements outlined here *For the 2020/21 academic year you will use income from 2018 taxes to determine your financial requirement eligibility. If you are considered a Dependent you will use your parent(s) 2018 income.
