WGU Ohio has a message for students and potential students across the state: Many scholarship opportunities are still available before the end of 2018.
“When we think of all the things that need our time and attention at this time of year, applying for a college scholarship isn’t usually on the list,” said Rebecca Watts, chancellor of WGU Ohio. “But, with a December 31 application deadline looming for several WGU scholarships, it would be wise for current and future WGU Ohio students to prioritize this simple task that could lead to long-term benefits.”
The nonprofit, accredited, online university is offering scholarship opportunities to Ohioans who want to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree in high-demand fields such as IT, business, K-12 education, and health professions, including nursing. Scholarships also are available for veterans, military service members, and their families.
All WGU programs are competency-based, providing the flexibility contemporary students need. At WGU, students can start a degree program at the first of any month of the year. Designed to meet the needs of adult learners, competency-based education allows students to take advantage of their knowledge and real-world experience to move quickly through material they already know so they can focus on what they still need to learn. WGU faculty members work one-on-one with students as mentors, offering guidance, support, and individualized instruction. While WGU’s degree programs are rigorous and challenging, competency-based learning makes it possible for students to accelerate their programs, saving both time and money.
The deadline for the Ohio scholarships is December 31, 2018.
