What kinds of college-sponsored aid can you expect from online colleges? Here are just a few examples of the money some of the larger online programs make available:
- Kaplan University’s tuition reduction initiatives include scholarships up to $12,750 and grants from corporate partners. Other discount programs provide assistance to returning Kaplan alumni and international students, as well as current and former military servicemembers and their spouses.
- The University of Phoenix offers multiple scholarships to prospective and current students, and the school often works with nonprofit partners to provide additional funding options. Institutional scholarships of up to $10,000 and grants of up to $1,500 are also available to eligible students.
- Walden University advertises over $1 million in total scholarships based on academic program and level of study. The “Commitment to Higher Education Leadership” scholarships are just one example, providing three $25,000 awards.
- Penn State World Campus provides multiple scholarship opportunities specifically to online students. World Campus students can also compete for the same funding resources available to Penn State campus-based students.
- Arizona State University Online’s scholarship programs include options for Arizona high school graduates, as well as for students interested in the history, philosophy and religious studies programs.
