2019 GreyCampus Scholarship Winners Announced!
We are pleased to announce Alexa Schwerha M & Lacee Sandberg as the winners of the GreyCampus Scholarship Program 2019.
We have received more than 500+ scholarship applications and the quality of essays submitted by applicants is impressive. After much cogitation by the Scholarship Committee that included the CEO, Directors and other staff the finalists have been decided.
KENT STATE UNIVERSITY
I am incredibly honoured to be selected as a finalist for the GreyCampus Scholarship and can assure you that the consideration is much appreciated in accordance with my academic pursuits. As a freshman at Kent State University, the burden of student loans is not an unacquainted familiarity. Like many other college students pursuing their undergraduate degrees, I am well aware of the cost required for such a desired accomplishment.
ROGUE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
My experience applying to the Grey Campus Scholarship has been nothing short of inspiring and informative for me personally. As a non-traditional college student who is changing careers from one industry to another, drastically different one, the prompt “Next Stop: Traditional Education or Certification Courses?” felt very relevant to everything that has been going on in my life over the last year. Writing about this prompt felt like the perfect way to lay out all of the thoughts and research I had already been doing on my own for several months in a clear, unbiased way. Researching this prompt forced me to reassess my true motives for returning to school as well as for changing careers, and reaffirmed that I was moving in the right direction by going back to college instead of taking certification courses. It is my sincere hope that my essay will help to guide others who are looking to change careers but who might not know how or where to start.

The GreyCampus scholarship amount covered almost all of my tuition for school this summer quarter. I only had to pay an additional $130 out of pocket! I just want to thank Grey Campus for hosting scholarships such as this one. Scholarships like these are an enormous help for non-traditional students like me who typically have a difficult time finding financial aid when returning to college.
