Scholarships

We have changed our scholarship application process to make it more accessible and allow more students to apply. Applications close December 7.

Hugo House wants anyone interested in writing to have access to the writing classes they desire.

Scholarship applications are read by a committee that considers financial need, interest in writing, and access to instruction in the past. We especially encourage applications from BIPOC, LGBTQ, and other underrepresented voices. 

We have recently changed our scholarship application process to make it more accessible and allow more students to apply. The new application should only take a few minutes to fill out.

Tuition assistance requests for Winter Quarter will close on December 7th. Interested applicants will be asked to choose one class from the Winter quarter for their application.

The application for Winter scholarships can be accessed here.

If you’re concerned about your class filling up, please apply as soon as possible. A place will be held in your requested course once your application is received. You will be notified of scholarship decisions on December 14, 2020

Book Lab and other select classes each quarter are ineligible for scholarships. You can contact the registrar (see email below) for a full list of exceptions. We grant one scholarship per student per quarter and up to two scholarships per student per year. Deferments are not permitted. Scholarship funds only cover tuition.

For more information about the scholarship fund, please email registrar@hugohouse.org or call (206) 322-7030. ​


A Note on Financial Need

One factor we consider is financial need. Below is the guide for household gross income at 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. We understand that flat income does not tell the whole story. If your income falls above these guidelines, you will still be considered for a scholarship based on our other guiding factors.

Household Size – Household Income

1 – $51,040 | 2 – $68,960 | 3 – $86,880 | 4 – $104,800 | 5 – $122,720 | 6 – $158,560 | 7 – $176,480
