    Recognizing the valuable service of Goodwill to the communities it serves, Southern Wesleyan University is offering a scholarship to its employees.

    “This is a great opportunity for SWU to partner with an organization whose mission it is to help those in need to reach their full potential through learning and the power of work,” said Dean Grile,  Southern Wesleyan’s director of strategic engagement and outreach.

    Southern Wesleyan University will award a 10 percent scholarship to employees of Goodwill who enroll in SWU Online Degree programs. The 10 percent scholarship will be applied proportionately to each course of the entire program. The scholarship will be applied only toward tuition.

    Students receiving tuition benefits from outside sources including VA benefits, military benefits, state and federal scholarships and grants, and tuition assistance programs may still qualify for scholarship assistance up to, but not to exceed 100 percent of tuition expenses.

    The scholarship will only be applied toward SWU Online degree programs for students who meet all admission standards for their desired degree program.

    Students must complete a scholarship application form that includes the signature of a supervisor verifying student is an employee of Goodwill. The scholarship will remain in place as long as the student remains employed with Goodwill.
