Arc of Washington Trust Fund: Student Stipend Program

Application Deadline: March 15, 2020

The Arc of Washington Trust Fund was established in 1950 to provide funds for research into intellectual and other developmental disabilities. It has grown to also include annual student stipends. The stipends, of up to $5,000 each, are awarded in an initial installment in the summer of the award year which will be sent to the university and the balance in September upon confirmation of your full-time enrollment in fall AND winter academic terms. Upper-level undergraduate or graduate-level students in institutions of higher education in the State of Washington who have a demonstrated interest and history in the field of intellectual or other developmental disabilities are eligible to apply.

For students who are awarded a student stipend, funds will be released to the university for distribution to the student for payment of student tuition, books and general living expenses after the schools provide evidence that the students continue to be enrolled (for the summer installment, enrollment is required for the fall). The Trust Fund hopes that this will allow colleges and universities to attract and retain students interested in working in the field as researchers, teachers or practitioners.
