INDIANAPOLIS — WGU Indiana awarded the WGU Alumni Master’s Scholarship, worth $2,000, to MBA student Alyssa Clapp of Westport, Indiana. The scholarship, which is only available to students who have already applied for admission in a master’s program, will support Clapp’s pursuit of her master’s degree in business administration

The WGU Alumni Master’s Scholarship is one of many scholarships offered by the online university to assist students financially. Since its inception in 2010, WGU Indiana has awarded 2,602 scholarships to qualifying students, totaling more than $5 million over the course of its first decade.

She’s part of the 83% of WGU students who are employed full-time and also pursuing a degree through the university. Prior to beginning the MBA program, Clapp completed her bachelor’s in healthcare management through WGU Indiana in just 10 months.
