$12.1 million

in scholarships was awarded to WGU students in 2018, making their education even more attainable.

“Thanks to my scholarship, I was able to successfully complete demonstrative teaching and graduate with dual certifications in both special and elementary education. Because of WGU, I am the first in my family to graduate from college with a bachelor’s degree.”

Amanda, 2019 WGU Graduate

Together, we’re fulfilling a promise to today’s students and our economic future.

"Shortening the enrollment-to-workforce cycle is important for the future of workforce development, and WGU Advancement is proving to be a critical funding source for Western Governors University in this endeavor. The resources generated through donations and grants will drive innovation and support scholarships to provide a pathway to a better life for students while also addressing workforce shortages."
