What is The Career Project's "Your Time" Scholarship?

At the Career Project, we understand that everyone's path to an education is different. Entering college directly out of high school isn't the best option for everyone. Others begin college, but decide to take a break and pick back up later. Whether you decided to work full-time for a few years prior to college or if you are looking for a degree for a career change, we know scholarships for non-traditional students are harder to come by, and we appreciate the courage to go back. The Career Project wants to help non-traditional students' paths to be a little less bumps by offering this scholarship to relieve some of the financial burdens. The Career Project's "Your Time" Scholarship honors those students age 25 and over who are seeking an associate's or bachelor's degree from an accredited school.

To qualify for this scholarship you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.5 for the preceding semester where applicable; if GPA is not applicable, must otherwise have an academic status in "good standing".
  • Must be 25 years of age or older.
  • Prior winners of the scholarship are not eligible to apply for the award in subsequent years.
  • The full amount of the scholarship must be applied towards tuition, books, training materials, and/or other costs directly associated with the recipient's education within 12 months of receiving the award.
