ADULT LEARNERS

This adult learner scholarship is available to adults who have some college, but no degree. Returning adult learners can receive up to $5,000 per year for up to five years to complete their degree or credit-bearing credential.

Adults must be at least 24 years old at the time of enrollment in the fall semester of 2018 and can enroll in college part-time or full-time. The scholarship will be sent directly to the college or university of enrollment.

To remain eligible once enrolled in college, adult learners must meet minimum annual requirements and complete a short renewal application each year.
