WGU Indiana provides $ 11,000 in scholarships
Aug 18 – INDIANAPOLIS – To celebrate its 11th anniversary, WGU Indiana recently announced that it had a college student and a graduate of the College of IT, College of Health Professions, College of Business and Teaching School. This is the university’s largest scholarship to date, and comes after WGU awarded nearly $ 1 million in grants in 2020 to Hoosiers seeking further education and graduation.
As the only fully online and competency-based university in the state, tuition fees are around $ 6,000 below the national average, according to 2019 university data. Since its inception in 2010 as the first state model of the nationally recognized Western Governors University, WGU Indiana has grown to include more than 5,000 enrolled students and more than 12,000 Hoosiers have earned a WGU degree.
“Getting a degree is a long-awaited achievement for many, but the typical cost of a degree is often a major hurdle that can prevent students from achieving their educational and career goals,” said Alison Bell, Chancellor of the WGU Indiana. “This scholarship helps overcome that barrier for undergraduate and graduate students due to much of the cost of studying, and offers them a new way to cross the finish line with a certificate in hand.”
WGU Indiana offers more than 60 accredited undergraduate and graduate degrees in business, information technology, K-12 education, and health professions, including nursing, and is open to all qualified Indiana residents. The online university offers an affordable study and competency-based educational model that allows students more flexibility to complete their degree at their own pace and time.
Celebrating the Hoosier Spirit Scholarship recipients will receive USD 2,750 for their WGU tuition fees for up to four semesters per six-month semester. Applications are open and scholarships are continuously awarded to prospective students. The application deadline is October 31, 2021.
