Saint Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
Saint Louis University’s School for Professional Studies understands how hard adult students work to juggle family, work and school priorities. That’s why the school is launching the Summer Stimulus package for current and new students. $10,000 in scholarships will be available for the Summer 2012 term and applicants have until May 10th to submit their online scholarship form.
The new student scholarship is designed to assist students who are newly admitted to the School for Professional Studies for the Summer 2012 term. The current student scholarship will assist students who are in need of financial assistance in order to continue taking classes during the Summer term. Additional information and requirements for each of the scholarships is listed on the school web site at busyadults.slu.edu. The school offers several degree programs such as Education, Criminal Justice Security Management and Computer Science Technology. Fifteen Certificate programs include Contract Management, Project Management and Sales Leadership. “We’ve established the Summer Stimulus Scholarship for 2012 to help make it more affordable for adult students to begin or continue their college education. As an adult student myself, I understand how challenging it is to attend college while managing family and work priorities,” stated Dr. Jennifer Giancola, Dean of the School for Professional Studies.
