The scholarships will cover all degree and non-degree programs, and provide financial support for employees who meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum of 60 days of employment service
  • Minimum of four full days of work availability per week
  • Maximum of five classes/15 credit hours per semester
  • Maintain a minimum grade of C in each class
