PULLMAN, Wash. – The success of the Washington State University crimson license plate has dramatically increased scholarship awards for the academic year.
The 17,200 Cougs who own the plates (more than all other collegiate plates in the state combined) have helped generate nearly $500,000 in scholarship support for WSU students. Each license plate yields $28 per year, which goes directly to student scholarships.
The university’s license-plate program is managed by the WSU Alumni Association (WSUAA). WSU records indicate there are more than 100,000 alumni residing in the state plus thousands of friends and fans.
