Pipeline for Paraeducators Conditional Loan Scholarship
The Pipeline for Paraeducator Conditional Loan Scholarship Program (Parapipeline Program) provides financial support to classified instructional staff, with at least three years of classroom experience, to pursue their Associate of Arts (AA) degree in order to qualify, enroll in, and complete a two-year Alternative Route 1 program at a participating university to obtain a residency teaching certificate. The AA degree must be direct transfer, qualify candidates to earn an endorsement in a subject matter shortage area, and be obtained through a community or technical college in no more than two years from the award date.
This program is administered jointly by the Professional Educator Standards Board (responsible for selecting recipients) and the Washington Student Achievement Council (responsible for distributing awards). Funding for this program is dependent upon annual budget appropriations from the Washington State legislature. The state laws establishing this program include the RCWs on the Pipeline for Paraeducators (28A.660.042) and Conditional Scholarship Programs (28A.660.050). Paraeducators must submit complete application materials to be considered for an award.
