Adult Student Scholarships

Stevens-Henager College believes that adult students who want to earn a career-focused degree should have an opportunity for scholarships! Many scholarship programs exist for students coming right out of high school, but very few scholarships are available for adults going back to school.

Our college has designed the following scholarships specifically for adult students. Eligibility is not based upon high school grades or past education. For all of the following scholarships, the scholarship award is for $3,000 if the recipient is enrolling in an associate’s degree program and $5,000 if the recipient is enrolling in a bachelor’s degree program.IT Professionals
