WGU has designated a small fund to provide financial assistance for students with extreme financial hardship during their demonstration teaching (DT) experience. We understand the financial strain each student entering DT experiences from employment loss. However, this special scholarship funding is only awarded to a very select, small group of students who have shown high levels of academic success at WGU throughout their degree program, and who will also be put into extenuating financial hardship beyond loss of income.
To be eligible for this fund, students must:
There may be more students who fit these minimal qualifications than we have funds to award. As a result, even excellent students with extraordinary financial need may not be recipients of this scholarship.
The review committee will consider applications twice per each cohort, typically around the 20th of the month following a deadline. To be considered for this scholarship, please complete the PDF application attached below and submit by the below deadlines. Should you need additional space or have problems with the form, please feel free to respond to the questions in any word processor (word, notepad, etc.).
January cohorts: October 10th, and December 10th
September cohorts: June 10th, and August 10th
Recipients of this award will receive a one-time award of $3,000 that will be released to the student’s account once fully accepted into the cohort. If a student is awarded, but later withdraws from the cohort, they will need to reapply for the scholarship for any future cohort considerations.
Should you have any questions regarding this scholarship funding, or need application assistance, please contact the scholarship department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-877-435-7948 ext. 3125.
