The staff at TheBestSchools.org realizes students enrolled in distance learning programs are some of the students most in need of scholarship money. For example, many online students are adults with families seeking to cover their monthly expenses. In order to help online students TheBestSchools.org is pleased to award, on an annual basis, $6,000 worth of scholarships for online learning to six recipients at $1,000 each.
Types of Online Learning Scholarships
- Three online learning scholarships (all online degrees)
