Nebraska Wesleyan, Iowa Western Sign Full Tuition Scholarship Agreement
Nebraska Wesleyan University has established a new scholarship that will help a student from Iowa Western Community College continue his or her education tuition free.
The new Advantage Scholarship will be awarded to a top candidate from a pool of applicants. Current students or graduates of Iowa Western Community College are eligible for the full tuition scholarship to enroll at Nebraska Wesleyan University’s Omaha Bachelors of Business Administration Program.
In addition, second and third place candidates will each receive $1,000 scholarships to apply toward tuition at the NWU Omaha Business Program.
“The Advantage Scholarship expands opportunities for students of Iowa Western Community College,” said IWCC President Dan Kinney. “We are pleased to have reached this agreement which will benefit our two institutions and current and future students of the college.”
Nebraska Wesleyan University President Fred Ohles visited the Iowa Western campus recently and signed a memo of understanding to provide these scholarship opportunities for three years. The first scholarship winners are expected to enroll at NWU next fall.
“This scholarship recognizes that NWU and IWCC have many of the same educational goals for their students,” said Jack Siemsen, Dean of University College at NWU. “Providing a scholarship that bridges our programs enables both institutions to play to their strengths for the benefit of all of our students.”
Nebraska Wesleyan’s Omaha Advantage Program offers working adults the opportunity to earn degrees and certificates in project management, nursing and business administration. Classes are held at NWU’s Omaha site at 11815 M Street.
