WGU Academy Scholarship opportunity!
Quote:WGU Academy is excited to announce we now offer scholarships to cover your tuition if you are experiencing financial need.
We know balancing family, work and school can be a lot. If you’re ready to return to school, we don’t want finances to stand in the way of your success.
While we offer several needs-based scholarships, the Bright Future Scholarship is for new Academy students who are unemployed or underemployed and cannot afford tuition. This scholarship is for $600 and covers up to four months of tuition at WGU Academy.
With some financial support and your hard work, your dreams of earning a college degree can become a reality.
Visit the scholarship application and terms and conditions to find out more and to get started.
We look forward to seeing you at WGU Academy!

For those that don't know, WGU Academy is WGU's low cost($150/month) admissions pathway for people who wouldn't otherwise be eligible for admission to WGU. It's basically a rebranded version of StraighterLine with only selected classes available, but also affords the opportunity to take 1 IT certification for no additional cost(if you choose CompTIA A+, it's an amazing value). Since it incorporates SL courses, they're ACE credits, just in case you don't end up going to WGU. The one downside of their academy is they have a mandatory orientation style course(PACA) which requires weekly zoom meetings. 

It should go without saying, but please only apply for this opportunity if it applies to you and you plan on going to WGU. I'm sure there are thousands of prospective WGU students out there who need/could benefit from this opportunity.
