Full Tuition Scholarship Helps Student Achieve Educational Dream

There’s no doubt about it, a degree can change your life. But what about the opportunity to earn your degree completely on scholarship?

A full-tuition scholarship is helping NCU student Kimika Samms realize her dream of earning a PhD, all without the financial burden of tuition.

Here’s what she has to say about receiving a scholarship and going back to school to pursue her dreams:

How to Finance a Master's Degree

Students pursue a master’s degree for a variety of reasons. For some, graduate school allows them to learn more about the field they love. For others, a postgraduate degree is their ticket to a higher-paying job.

Whatever your reason for pursuing advanced education, the fact remains that studying for a master’s degree can be costly.

How much does a master’s degree cost?

What is the Value of a Master's Degree?

If you’ve wondered if it would be worth it to go back to school for a master's degree, you can’t help but notice that many business professionals are doing just that. It helps set them up for a potential promotion and the accompanying increase in salary that would take professional certifications related to your career field or years of additional experience to attain. A master's degree will certainly open more doors than a bachelor's. And the insight you gain will indeed make you a master of your chosen field.

Valentine’s Day Ideas for Busy Students

Would you be surprised to know that Valentine’s Day has mysterious beginnings? Not only were there two martyrs named Valentine to which the holiday might be attributed, there was an existing ancient roman holiday named Galatin’s Day, which was a fertility celebration.

Over time, it’s suspected that this celebration got meshed with St. Valentine’s Day leading to the holiday we celebrate today.

Scholarships are more than dollars and cents

Scholarships offer more than financial help, often times they are also the catalyst that encourages dreamers to become doers. These incentives can embolden potential students to imagine the possibilities life might hold if they earn their degree. Many students also find that writing a scholarship essay revitalizes their passion and offers the motivation they need to get started.
