Make the smart choice, apply for the scholarship

The first day of school is an exciting time of year as children plan new outfits, purchase new notebooks, and walk into the classroom with a sense of hope for the academic year and future. We all want our children to get as much education as possible, but a good question for you is: what is stopping you from getting as much education as possible? It is never too late to gain or further your education and have your first day of school experience, even as an adult, because like your child, you deserve the opportunity to succeed.

WGU Nevada’s mission is to provide working adults with an affordable and flexible way to earn their degree. This year, the Smart Choice Scholarship is being offered to help adults make the choice to learn new skills, get the recognition they deserve, and enrich their lives. Because WGU is a non-profit institution, its tuition is already breathtakingly low, and now, WGU is offering 250 of these Smart Choice Scholarships nationwide to help make going back to school your reality.  Each scholarship is valued at up to $2,000, which is $500 per six-month term for up to four terms. About $50,000 of the overall amount could be given to Nevada residents.

Ultimately, WGU wants you to get your degree quickly and affordably, so the only thing on your mind should be investing in your future. To be eligible for this opportunity, a new WGU student must complete an application for admission, a scholarship application, an application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), submit official transcripts of all prior college work, and be officially admitted to WGU.

Because the Smart Choice Scholarship is a competitive program, recipients will be chosen based on their academic record, financial need, readiness for online study, and current competency. Applicants are encouraged to enter as soon as possible because new students start at the beginning of every month.

At WGU, affordability means more than 60 cutting-edge programs at tuition rates that are half what you would pay at other online universities. By entering for the Smart Choice Scholarship, you have a chance to get a degree with little to no debt. Applications are now being accepted for this scholarship through September 30—do not wait to earn your respected degree!
