COLLEGE OFFERS SCHOLARSHIPS TO PART-TIME STUDENTS


8/13/2003

Uncertain economic times and high unemployment often compel people to re-evaluate their career paths and consider acquiring a new set of skills. In many cases, those same people have limited financial resources to accomplish their goals. This fall, La Roche College will respond to this challenge. The College will become one of only a few institutions of higher learning in the region to offer continuing education scholarships to part-time students.

“Investing in an education involves a commitment of time and money, and many adults are already balancing a host of other responsibilities,” said Howard J. Ishiyama, Ph.D., vice president of academic affairs. “This scholarship initiative will help remove some of the financial obstacles so that people can get the education they need to advance their careers.”

When a student applies to La Roche College, the Office of Admissions for Graduate and Continuing Education will review the student’s application, credentials and transcripts to see if he/she is eligible. The awards range in amounts up to $1,500. The scholarship is renewable as long as a student remains enrolled on a part-time basis and maintains a 2.5 GPA. <
