Full-Tuition, Full-Need Scholarship
Act Six is the Northwest's only full-tuition, full-need urban and community leadership scholarship. Seeking Washington and Oregon's most promising emerging leaders, Act Six works with colleges and other partners to guarantee that scholars receive scholarships that, at minimum, cover full tuition at the college.
Scholars with need beyond tuition (as determined by the FAFSA) will receive additional grant and work study to fully meet that need. For most scholars, the awards will therefore cover some or all of the cost of room and board, books, travel and personal expenses.
To retain the scholarship, scholars are required to remain active in the program and maintain satisfactory academic progress throughout their undergraduate studies.
The Big Picture
To date, Act Six scholars across the network have been awarded nearly $39 million in grants and scholarships, with another $8 million expected to be awarded to this year's new scholars.
