The scholarship is exclusively available for students entering Associate Degree programs. Available majors include:

“My husband has been in the military for 17 years and with the constant moving around and deployments, I needed an educational program that would allow me some leeway to study at my own pace. I needed some kind of window that would help me allow my study time, as well as my duties as a mother and a homemaker.”

Rules of the Designed for You Scholarship

Eligible degree students can earn an adult learner scholarship to make college more affordable. To apply for a scholarship you must meet eligibility criteria and submit a scholarship essay in addition to completing the application and submitting general degree application materials.

1. Applying
  • Applicants must submit their scholarship essay and all general degree application materials by the application deadline.
  • Scholarship awards will be announced within two weeks of the application deadline.
  • Potential winners will be asked to verify their eligibility for a scholarship. For example, an International Student will be asked to verify their non-U.S. citizenship. Applicants who are unable to document eligibility will not receive an award.
  • Scholarship awards are only available for students entering the program for the first time.
2. Awards
  • A scholarship award is applied to your total course price. Along with any transfer credits you are eligible for, a scholarship will reduce your program costs.
  • You cannot be awarded a Designed for You scholarship in more than one category or combine the award with an enrollment benefit. However, a Designed for You scholarship may be combined with our sources of aid, such as Federal Student Aid and GI Bill® education benefit, if you are eligible for such funding.
  • All scholarship decisions are at the discretion of the scholarship awards committee.
  • For program cancellations, scholarship awards are not part of refundable tuition.
