WGU Leaders in Nonprofit Scholarship

Western Governors University has partnered with Free For Charity (FFC) to offer Leaders in Nonprofit Scholarships to professionals working in the nonprofit sector. Founded by a WGU alumnus, FFC seeks to “reduce costs and increase revenues for nonprofits; putting that money back into their charitable mission where it belongs.” FCC knows that the strength of a nonprofit lies in its leadership, and that a master’s or undergraduate degree can help the individual and the nonprofit grow and succeed. This scholarship is open to new WGU students (within 60 days of enrolling) and returning WGU graduates (within 60 days of beginning the continuing program). To be eligible for this scholarship you must:

  • Show proof of earning an associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree
  • Show proof of being employed with a nonprofit organization
  • Be officially admitted to a WGU business or IT degree program.
