Western Governors University North Carolina and the USO of N.C. have collaborated to provide eight scholarships.
The online university is offering the Military Service Scholarship to active duty members, veterans or family members.
Each recipient will receive a $2,500 scholarship.
WGU N.C. says this is a great opportunity for highly mobile populations.
“Instead of going through eight weeks, six-week courses, you can go into a course and if you can demonstrate the competency by passing the assessments, you’re done with that course that day,” said Anna Mezzaroba, Ed.D., faculty at WGU’s Teacher College.
Scholarships will be based on academic records and readiness for online study.
Those chosen have the option to choose from 60 of their undergraduate and graduate degrees in business, IT, education, and healthcare.
Applicants have until May 31.
