Regional Challenge Grants

Innovations in College & Career Pathways

Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) will award competitive Regional Challenge Grants. The grants will support local or regional partnerships among K-12, colleges, and community-based organizations.  

Grantees will seek to: 

  • Implement or expand innovative interventions to increase college enrollment and completion. 
  • Support high school students or adult learners. 
  • Eliminate opportunity gaps for marginalized populations. 

Coming Up

Join us! Register on Zoom.

What: Help shape the Regional Challenge Grant - call for public participation

When: June 16, 2022 @ 10:00-11:00 a.m.

Who: Educators, community members, or organizations who want to provide perspectives and help inform grant design.


WSAC engaged with students and stakeholders to better understand the enrollment crisis in Washington State and to brainstorm solutions. Regional challenge grants are the result of that work. The Legislature passed Senate Bill 5789, providing $6 million in initial funding for regional challenge grants for 2022-23. 

Next Steps

The grant program is in development. This page will be updated as details are available.
