Imagine America Foundation’s Adult Excellence Award Offers Funds to Underserved Non-Traditional Students

Washington, D.C. (Sept. 06, 2011) – Older students are already faced with daunting challenges in attaining a higher education, and yet they also have to address another harsh reality when it comes to financial aid: not many scholarships are available to them. The Imagine America Foundation, though, has introduced a new scholarship to benefit non-traditional students attending career colleges or “for-profit” schools.

The Foundation has developed the Adult Excellence Award to provide needed financial assistance to students who are attending participating Imagine America institutions through its Adult Skills Education Program (ASEP). Each scholarship provides $500 cash grants toward the student’s tuition balance.
