MINNEAPOLIS, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its continuing commitment to make higher education accessible and affordable, Walden University is offering millions of dollars in tuition assistance in 2014 for online bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees across all programs through scholarships, grants and other tuition savings.
"Our tuition savings opportunities, grants and scholarships are an investment in the future of our students and the communities they serve as advocates for positive social change. It is our hope that tuition assistance initiatives such as these can help put a degree within reach for students of all programs," said Dr. Cynthia Baum, president of Walden.
This includes more than $1 million in a variety of merit-based scholarships to help students reach their educational goals. These scholarships are based on a student's particular area of study and specific goals, and are available for education programs, health sciences and nursing programs, social work programs and management programs. In addition, scholarships are available for new online master's and doctoral students who reflect Walden's mission and demonstrate the capacity to effect positive social change.
"I am so grateful that Walden granted me a scholarship to pursue my Ed.D. with a specialization in Teacher Leadership. It has afforded me the opportunity to take what I've learned in 23 years of classroom teaching and expand the positive impact I can have on others in the world of education," said Derek Olson, a recipient of a scholarship from The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership.
