Subject: The WSOS Career and Technical Scholarship application is now open!

Please distribute to Student Services councils and WEC.

The fall Career and Technical Scholarship (CTS) application is now open<https://www.waopportunityscholarship.org/scholar-portal/ctseligibility/>!

Our scholarship funds are flexible and can be used to cover tuition, fees and other costs of attendance such as housing, transportation, food and more.

Have you seen our recently launched CTS applicant page in Spanish? Check it out: https://www.waopportunityscholarship.org/students/applicants/cts-applicants-spanish/ and share with Spanish-speaking applicants, families and partners! We're so excited to offer this new resource to our applicants and partners.

Can I see who has applied for the scholarship? If you're high school or college staff, request access to the Promotional Partner Dashboard by completing this form<https://c6bkr823.caspio.com/dp/d686800075e9cb3cf0284e70a2b7>. The dashboard tells you which students have started and submitted their applications in real time.

This is a life-changing scholarship, but it can only benefit those who apply. Please help us reach eligible students by joining us as a promotion partner this academic year!

Applications are due June 6, 2021.

The Rural Jobs Initiative (RJI) is a unique program dedicated to ensuring those farthest from the state’s community and technical colleges have a path to earning a credential that will lead to a high-demand job in their rural community. CTS applicants that meet the additional criteria will be considered automatically for RJI when they apply. No extra steps are required!

Visit the RJI page<https://www.waopportunityscholarship.org/students/applicants/cts/#cts-rural-jobs> on our website to learn more about the eligibility criteria and view a list of rural counties whose residents are eligible for additional funding!
