Schoolcraft College Foundation Offering Distance Learning Scholarships

March 25, 2020

As our country navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, The Schoolcraft College Foundation is offering scholarships awards of up to $500 per student to enroll in Spring/Summer distance learning (online) courses. A total of approximately $50,000 is available for scholarships in a new Distance Learning Scholarship Fund.

For many Americans the new norm is to work and learn from home. Schoolcraft College is prepared to offer quality classes in a virtual environment to ensure your education continues. Advisors are available to assist, and online support is available for those who are new to online learning.  

“Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Schoolcraft College Foundation is able to offer students an outstanding opportunity to make progress on their educational goals during this time of crisis,” said Schoolcraft College Vice President Dr. Cheryl M. Hagen. “We’ve been able to transition nearly all of our traditional, lecture-type classes to a distance-learning format with excellent levels of support for students who may be new to online learning.”

Further, these scholarships can help a variety of students: current students, returning adults, high school seniors keeping up with classes, college students seeking transferable courses, and more.
