For application assistance please contact the Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network at 1 (844) 724-3737 OR one of our other partnered organizations below if you do not have access to an internet-connected device:
Please give all applicants their Submission ID and tell them to write it down and/or take a photo and save it somewhere. This number is very important to track the status of their application.
If you need to update or correct an error on your application after it has been submitted, please submit a new application with your updated information.
Due to the anticipated high number of applications, there will not be an appeal process.
If your household submits multiple applications by mistake, Scholar Fund (Scholarship Junkies) will be able to identify that multiple applications from the same household were submitted and will review the application that conveys the higher need. They may also contact applicants via phone or text if they detect application issues.
We will be reviewing applications on a weekly basis. Notifications will go out to the email address linked to your account and via text message after your application has been reviewed. You may look up the status of your application at any time at https://www.kcfeesupport.org/status. Please be patient as we are reviewing applications and prioritizing funding those with the highest need.
Approved applicants can receive a $500 minimum amount, $3,000 maximum per individual, $6,000 maximum per household. You can receive the money as a check, gift card (Visa), or ACH, which is a direct deposit into your bank account.
Eligible applicants are only able to receive a one-time payment.
Payments will be released to the community in weekly intervals starting after September 20th. Checks and gift cards mailed may take longer to receive and we expect everyone will receive payment within 14 days after you have been given your award notice.
There are three options for receiving payments: Check, Direct Deposit (ACH), or a Physical Gift Card.
Yes. Residence address is used to show residency in King County. A mailing address could be a P.O. box or any address where you receive their mail and/or feel more comfortable receiving it, as long as the address is within Washington state.
Yes, you can change your form of payment after you have been approved. Please contact Scholar Fund at 206-222-7069 or at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, submission ID, and what form of payment you would prefer.
You are able to retrieve funds from an ATM using your gift card, but you may be subject to a withdrawal fee or limit depending on the ATM.
Your ability to pay for fees online using a gift card depends solely on the mode of payment accepted by the agency you are paying the fees to.
You are able to retrieve funds from an ATM using your gift card, but you may be subject to a withdrawal fee or limit depending on the ATM. You will then need to deposit and write your own check or purchase a money order with the cash (or the gift card if the issuer allows) and follow payment instructions based on the agency you are paying fees to.
Please note: If an agency allows you to pay with the gift card, filing status may be harder to track compared to using a personal credit or debit card from a bank or credit union.
Checks received from this program cannot be attached to the forms you mail because the check is made out to the applicant and NOT an agency. You will need to deposit and write your own check or purchase a money order with the cash and follow payment instructions based on the agency you are paying fees to.
No. According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), “disaster relief" benefits, such as this program, will not be considered in determining whether an individual is a public charge. You can also read this USCIS Public Charge Fact Sheet for more information. If you have questions about your immigration status and/or use of benefits, you should speak with an immigration attorney or DOJ-accredited representative.
No. Receiving financial aid from the King County Immigration Fee Support will not impact your ability to become a U.S. citizen. It will also not impact the ability of a lawful permanent resident/green card holder family member to become a U.S. citizen. If you have questions about your immigration status and/or use of benefits, you should speak with an immigration attorney or DOJ-accredited representative.
No, all payments are made as grants and classified as disaster relief under the IRS and should not be included as taxable income.
