Vaccinated students to be selected for scholarships

  • Published Friday, July 16, 2021

Renton Technical College announces participation in the state Vaccine Incentive Program to encourage our students to protect themselves and their communities and support them in their studies.

With funding the Washington State COVID-19 Vaccination Incentive, 25 eligible students may be selected for scholarships of $400 each.

Student Eligibility 

Students who are eligible for the incentive program will be automatically included in the selection process – no need to apply!  

To be eligible, a student must meet all the following criteria: 

  • Completed six or more credits during Spring Quarter 2021. 
  • Declare an intent to attend RTC in the Fall of 2021. 
  • Provide proof that they have received at least one shot of the COVID-19 Vaccine

How it Works 

RTC will award 25 scholarships to randomly selected eligible students. Students who have received their first vaccination by July 29, 2021, will be eligible for a $400 scholarship for the Fall 2021 Quarter.  

Students who are not yet vaccinated have an added incentive to get their first vaccination dose by July 30.

Selection Process 

Students will be randomly selected by July 26. Students who are selected will be contacted via email and text. Students have three (3) business days to respond and schedule an appointment to verify their vaccination status.

If a student does not respond, another will be selected.

Once verified, the student must complete an acceptance form. After the student signs the acceptance form, the scholarship will be credited to their student account before the beginning of Fall 2021 Quarter.
