Each Teacher Appreciation Scholarship is valued at up to $2,000—$500 per six-month term for up to four terms. New and enrolling students can apply for these scholarships now through June 30. To be eligible, scholarship applicants must be officially admitted to WGU Nevada, complete the scholarship application, and be interviewed by a scholarship counselor.

While WGU Nevada will award up to 25 scholarships, recipients will be selected based on their academic records, financial need, and readiness for online study at WGU, among other considerations. WGU will also waive the $65 application fee for all scholarship applicants who apply by the scholarship deadline, just use the code: GOTEACH.

WGU Nevada’s competency-based learning model allows students to study at times that work for their schedule, moving quickly through what they already know so they can focus on what they still need to learn. This allows many students to accelerate their studies, finishing faster, which saves not only time, but money.
