WGU North Carolina’s Military Service Scholarships offer $2,500 in tuition credit and can be applied to any of the more than 60 bachelor’s and master’s degrees offered by WGU in business, IT, education, and healthcare, including nursing. 

Among the recipients of the WGU Military Service Scholarships for 2022 are the following individuals:

Since its inception, the Military Service Scholarships program has awarded more than $77,000 in tuition credit to WGU North Carolina students. The scholarships were awarded based on a candidate’s academic record, readiness for online study, and current competency, as well as other considerations.

WGU North Carolina is an affiliate of accredited online nonprofit Western Governors University, and currently serves more than 4,100 students across North Carolina. Tuition at WGU is around $4,000 per six-month term for most degree programs, and students can accelerate through as many courses as they are comfortable with within a term. WGU has been named a Military Friendly® School for 12 consecutive years and was named number one in the online category for 2022-2023.

“As we celebrate our fifth anniversary as a WGU state affiliate, it is especially gratifying to continue to provide flexible and affordable degree programs to the military community,” said WGU North Carolina Chancellor Ben Coulter, Ed.D. “As an educator and former U.S. Army officer, I extend my personal congratulations to all recipients of this year’s Military Service Scholarships.”
