Just in time for Teacher Appreciation Week and National Nurses Week, WGU and CareerBuilder have introduced two new, free guides designed to help teachers and nurses—and those aspiring to be either one—excel in their jobs and meet their career goals.
This blog post was adapted from advice written by a WGU evaluator—who is also a WGU alum—as feedback to a student who was struggling to write a passing paper for a course in the MBA program. It’s a great perspective from someone who has experience both as a WGU student and faculty member, so we’re sharing it here as helpful advice as you make your way through your online degree program at WGU.
Over the past five years, WGU has awarded an average of 1,200 scholarships per year (that’s more than three per day!). A typical scholarship is between $2,000 and $3,000, which means we award an average of $3 million per year, every year.
