05/02/13 WGU Indiana is now accepting applications for $100,000 in new Taking Indiana to a Higher Degree Scholarships. This is the largest scholarship offering in the university’s history.
“This new scholarship opportunity is a direct result of WGU Indiana’s intentional focus on breaking down barriers to degree attainment,” WGU Indiana Chancellor Allison Barber said. “In Indiana, 740,000 adults have some college experience but no degree. These scholarships will help working adults achieve their goals of earning a bachelor’s or master’s degree and go further in life through education.”
WGU Indiana will award 50 new scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each ($500 per term for four terms). The scholarship amount is especially significant relative to the university’s $6,000-per-year tuition maximum. WGU Indiana has not raised its tuition rate during its nearly three years of existence as a state university.
To be eligible, applicants must have some college credit, apply as new students to WGU Indiana, and pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree. The deadline to apply for a Taking Indiana to a Higher Degree Scholarship is July 1.
