-A +A
William Jessup University recently announced a new, full-tuition scholarship program aimed specifically at local veterans. Any veteran who has served on active duty for at least 36 aggregate months since Sept. 11 will have the complete cost of tuition covered in any program the university offers. “This scholarship program reinforces the commitment WJU has made to those individuals willing to put their lives on the line for our country,” said Korey Compaan, director of financial aid at William Jessup Univer-sity. “We are excited to be able to assist our veterans with the opportunity to experience the unique value of private, higher education for virtually no out-of-pocket costs to the student.” Effective Aug. 1 for the 2009-10 school year, this program is made possible by the passage of the new post Sept. 11 GI Bill. The scholarship program applies to both the traditional program and the adult degree completion program. Questions can be directed to WJU at 577-2200 or — Staff Report
