Make it in Washington Scholarship Program
**Notice: Tuition/scholarships end Fall 2017**
The Make it in America Challenge is a $20.5 million federal initiative providing the resources and education to help U.S. companies expand their domestic operations and build a highly skilled workforce. Nine states (10 projects) were awarded MiiA funds in 2013, including Washington state.
The Make it in Washington (MiiW) initiative provides technical assistance, resources, and advanced education and training to small and midsized manufacturers in eligible Washington counties. The goal of MiiW is to increase manufacturing capacity, strengthen supply chains, attract investment, and create new opportunities for businesses and individuals. See the Workforce Training & Education Coordinating Board website for more details.
