The Aerospace Loan Program (ALP) provides low-interest loans to Washington students
who have been accepted into the Washington Aerospace Training and Research Center
Program but have demonstrated inability to pay the full cost of attending the program.
Students can receive up to $7,900 for 20 weeks of training to enhance their existing job skills or earn certificates of completion in various aerospace production fields. The Washington Aerospace Training and Research Center was created to help meet the demand for skilled aerospace workers in Washington. After completion of the program, ALP recipients have a 6 month grace period before their first payment is due and up to three years to repay their loans.
