Navajo-Hopi Observer

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - CollegeAmerica announced Aug. 8 a new scholarship program, "2014 Your Future Scholarships." The scholarship program is available to prospective students until November 30.

CollegeAmerica and its affiliated schools will offer 10 full-tuition scholarships, 20 half-tuition scholarships, 30 bachelor's degree scholarships worth $5,000 each, and 30 associate's degree scholarships worth $3,000 each. Scholarships will be awarded by term and over the course of the students' programs and are designed to financially help new students earn their career-focused degree.

"We recognize earning a college degree can be difficult, especially when students are balancing family and work responsibilities. Our hope through our scholarship program is to provide opportunities to individuals committed to improving their personal and professional circumstances through higher education," said Eric Juhlin, chief executive officer of CollegeAmerica. "Because of this program and the flexibility it offers, more students will be able to jump start their careers and increase stability for themselves and their families."

Scholarship applications are available to prospective students of CollegeAmerica. Scholarships are intended for new students looking to earn a degree and are designed to assist those individuals balancing education with other responsibilities.

To qualify, applicants must be a new student of CollegeAmerica and scheduled to start school between July and the end of November. Candidates must fill out an application in person at any one of the school's campuses, submit one to two letters of recommendation from non-family members, complete a 500- to 700-word essay on how education at CollegeAmerica will change the applicant's life and take the Wonderlic SLE-Q test, an exam used to evaluate critical thinking and problem-solving capabilities.
