Making a Difference for Families of Washington's Workers

applyforscholarshipKids’ Chance of Washington is a need-based scholarship program for the dependent children and spouses of workers killed or seriously disabled in a workplace accident in Washington. It was founded in 2001 as one of 20 states helping kids to achieve their desired future.

The future can look frightening to someone whose parent or spouse has been seriously or fatally injured at work. Already confronting difficult emotions, they often must confront the hurdle of funding their education—the key to their future and ours. Each year, hundred of kids face this challenge.

Scholarships
Through the collaborative efforts of business and labor organizations, need-based scholarships are provided to the children and spouses of Washington workers who are permanently or catastrophically injured or deceased. These scholarships are not available for graduate school. Scholarships are funded through donations from business and labor organizations throughout Washington, as well as individuals, employers, attorneys, other groups, and special activities sponsored by specific individuals or groups and grants.

How Can You Help?
As a volunteer organization, your help is critical to our success. Monetary donations from people like you make our work possible. Please consider giving to this important program. Kids’ Chance of Washington is committed to the future of children who have experienced the emotional and financial trauma following the loss or serious injury of a parent in a workplace accident. Your generous gift to support this worthwhile organization is the key to a child’s future. As noted above, we also provide scholarship for qualifying spouses of workers killed or injured in the workplace.
