college scholarships“Scholarships are great ways to help support students in being able to afford college,” said Jill Garcia, Globe University-Woodbury financial aid manager. “The goal of the financial aid department is to help make higher education affordable and accessible to all. It was a pleasure to be able to award $13,000 of Director’s Academic Scholarships to students at the Woodbury campus.”

Garcia noted that she wished more students on campus would take advantage of the wide range of scholarships the campus offers.

Globe University offers a number of scholarship opportunities to help students defray the costs of education, including the Director’s Academic Scholarship. This scholarship gives high school students the opportunity to be awarded anywhere from $500 to $5,000 depending on their Career Programs Assessment Test (CPAt).

What is the CPAt?

The CPAt is a test that measures a student’s abilities in three areas: language, reading and numerical skills. The U.S. Department of Education has approved the CPAt for its ATB (ability to benefit) program, which provides financial and other aid to students who qualify.
