The Legislature established the Washington Scholars program to recognize three seniors graduating from high schools in each legislative district in the state who have distinguished themselves academically among their peers.

Colleges were required to waive tuition (operating and building fees) and services and activities fees for any recipients of the Washington Scholars Award who received their awards prior to June 20, 1994.

Language pertaining to waivers was eliminated from statute in 2015. Instead of waivers, recipients of the Washington Scholars Award are eligible to receive a grant from the Office of Student Financial Assistance.
