Announcing New Scholarship with Dunwoody
Dunwoody College and Wallin Education Partners announce scholarship aimed at helping students pursue a technical education.
New Aspire Scholarship will provide up to $8,000 over two years towards an Associate’s Degree
A new scholarship is paving the way for more college-ready students with financial need to pursue their dreams of earning a college degree.
Wallin Education Partners is proud to announce a new partnership that will open doors to a Dunwoody education and the great careers it provides.
Dunwoody and Wallin Education Partners have created the Aspire Scholarship, which includes financial support, on-going mentorship, and college-to-career guidance for students interested in pursuing a two-year technical degree at Dunwoody.
“Collaboration is the most effective way to help lower-income, college-ready students earn a college degree and begin fulfilling careers,” said Susan Basil King, President and CEO of Wallin Education Partners. “Dunwoody is unique in its curriculum, internship program, and college-to-career support. Wallin is thrilled to be collaborating with Dunwoody to make a college degree possible for more students in our community.“
Applications for the scholarship will open on March 1 and can be accessed through the Wallin EP website. Students accepted into the scholarship program will receive up to $4,000 a year and will need to complete the application and acceptance process through the College.
During their time at Dunwoody, students will receive on-going support and mentorship as they navigate their college experience, as well as career placement support after they graduate.
“From construction to manufacturing, a Dunwoody degree opens the doors to great in-demand careers in high-paying fields,” said Dunwoody President Rich Wagner. “But for many students, a college education can be out of reach without additional scholarship support. We are grateful and excited for this new opportunity with Wallin Education Partners, who share our commitment to making college possible, and attainable.”
