PLEASANT HILL, CA - John F. Kennedy University President Dr. Mac Powell announced expanded scholarships for new students admitted for the coming fall.
The University has announced the availability of 30 more scholarships of $5,000 each for Hispanic students looking to complete their bachelor's degree. Coupled with the 20 scholarships previously announced this spring, the University now offers 50 undergraduate scholarships for Hispanic students.
"Education continues to be among the very best investments an individual can make in his or her long-term success," said Dr. Powell. "However, we recognize that the biggest hurdle for students is the financial cost. So largely as a result of contributions from private donors, we are able to offer additional scholarships opportunities to make education more affordable."
In addition, the University is offering $2,500 transfer scholarships to students transferring from any California community college and $500 scholarships for Pleasant Hill residents.
The University also continues to recognize the service of veterans and active duty service members by providing full scholarships to those who qualify for post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.
During the week of September 8, individuals looking to start in the fall are invited to come by the University campuses in Pleasant Hill, Berkeley, or San Jose to submit their application and receive an application fee waiver. For more information and campus directions, call 800.696.5358.
