Online Western Governors U to Offer $125,000 in Scholarships to Displaced Concordia U-Portland Students

The online institution Western Governors University (WGU) announced it will offer $125,000 in scholarship funds to students who will be displaced by the closure of Concordia University-Portland this coming spring.

WGU will launch the WGU Finish Strong Scholarship, a new initiative specifically for Concordia-Portland students. The program will award as many as 50 scholarships, valued up to $2,500 each, and every award will be applied to any of the school’s bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in business, teaching, nursing and informational technology (IT).Online 4727942 1920

“WGU’s student-focused model is unique and should be an excellent option for a number of those students impacted by the closure,” said the online university’s regional vice president Tonya Drake. “I understand the disappointment they must feel right now, but I hope they stay on course and continue working toward their dream of a university degree.”

Concordia University-Portland announced earlier this month that it plans to close up shop at the end of the spring 2020 academic semester.
