The generous funding provided by the Daniels Fund will allow us to help even more students who might not otherwise be able to complete their degrees due to financial constraints.
Greenwood Village, Colo. (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is committed to providing access and affordability to help adult students complete their bachelor’s degrees online. Through additional contributions of the Daniels Fund, the university will be able to continue to provide Boundless Opportunity Scholarships to adult students who are close to graduating but cannot afford tuition for their remaining credit hours.
“Given our experience and data in working with nontraditional learners, we appreciate the difficult realities many of our students face when we review their prior educational expenses and financial aid debt with them,” stated Colorado State University-Global Campus President, Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker. “The generous funding provided by the Daniels Fund will allow us to help even more students who might not otherwise be able to complete their degrees due to financial constraints.”
CSU-Global previously has received funds from the Colorado-based Daniels Fund to offer Boundless Opportunity Scholarships to its students, but recently received an additional $15,000 to expand its On-The-Horizon scholarship program for the reminder of the 2014-2015 academic year. This scholarship program is designed for students who are within 24 credits of their bachelor’s degree completion, and who demonstrate significant financial need as they are approaching their federal financial aid loan limit.
“The number of students with educational debt and no degree is growing at an alarming rate,” continued Dr. Takeda-Tinker. “The On-The-Horizon scholarship is in direct support of our mission to help students finish what they started to facilitate their workplace and personal success.”
