TROY, Mich., Nov. 18, 2021 — Walsh College is awarding up to $10,000 academic excellence merit awards to all new undergraduate students with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.75 or higher. Graduate students with a GPA of 3.75 or higher will qualify for a limited number of $6,000 academic excellence awards. Numerous scholarship opportunities for student who do not meet the GPA requirement are available as well.
“Many students are facing new financial challenges and we never want those to be a barrier to education. Walsh is proud to provide these funds to remove some financial burden and allow students to focus on their studies and prepare for successful careers,” said Heide Wisby, director of financial aid.
Expanding the scholarship program to increase access to education is a primary focus of Walsh’s centennial campaign, which was recently launched ahead of the 100th anniversary of the school’s founding in 2022. Walsh provided more than $500K in grants, awards and scholarships to incoming students in the fall 2021 semester.
Applications are still being accepted for Walsh’s winter semester beginning Jan.3, 2022. For more information or to apply, visit www.walshcollege.edu.
