Western Governors University Scholarships to Choose From

Western Governors University is one the most generous academe in terms of providing students with scholarships that will help them in their financial constraints. This is of course made possible through WGU’s dedication to distance learning education and its partnership with several foundations, corporations, and the federal government.

Getting your online bachelor degree can be a real challenge, especially if you don’t have enough funds to back up your studies. There are lots of the scholarships offered for new students that have their respective qualifications and requirements that must be followed. These scholarships have different amounts that can help students in every way.

Students who want to apply for a scholarship would need to work on the applicable 60 days after starting a specific degree program. When it comes to WGU scholarships, a scholarship should only be applied to one degree program. More than that, while multiple scholarships are possible, a review board would need to intervene for evaluation.

In distance learning education, scholarships from Western Governors University are only for US citizens. While there may be non-citizens who could quality for the scholarships, they need to be eligible and follow some guidelines. In addition to that, employees working for WGU and their spouses are not eligible to these scholarships.

The ITT Transfer Scholarship is an option you can take for your online bachelor degree. Former ITT Tech students are qualified for this scholarship and would be awarded up to US$2,000 if chosen. On the other hand, the Mark Bonin Memorial Scholarship is offered to nursing students specifically in Southern California, which can amount to US$2,500.

Smart Choice Scholarship amounts to US$2,000. This specific scholarship is offered to new students who can choose from over 60 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. Meanwhile, the WGU Alumni Master’s Scholarship is offered to students interested in pursuing their master’s degree only. They can be awarded with up to US$2,000.

Another great scholarship that supports distance learning education is the Women in Technology Scholarship. This scholarship awards US$2,000 to women interested in pursuing bachelor’s and master’s degree in Information Technology. While the WGU Excellent in Health Information Management Scholarship also amounts to US$2,000 but only offered to experienced healthcare professionals and IT experts.

If you are interested to complete your online bachelor degree, have faith. There are lots of scholarships that can help you in times of financial constraints. You simply have to search for the best and most ideal one to your situation, as well as that scholarship with qualifications and requirements that you can cater to.
