The scholarship is worth $1,250 per six-month term, up to $2,500, toward tuition in any of WGU's Master of Business Administration or Master of Science degree programs in business. It will reduce recipients' tuition costs by nearly 30 percent for the first year they are enrolled. WGU's College of Business programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and include a traditional MBA, MBAs specializing in information technology management and healthcare management, and master's degrees in leadership and accounting.

Nonprofit and competency-based, WGU is designed for working adults wanting to boost their careers by going back to school while continuing to work. Students can take advantage of their existing knowledge and experience to move quickly through material they already know, so they can focus on what they still need to learn. Online and available 24/7, programs do not require students to log in at specific times or rearrange their schedules. WGU faculty members work one-on-one with students as mentors, offering guidance, support, and individualized instruction. While WGU's degree programs are rigorous and challenging, competency-based learning makes it possible for students to accelerate their progress, saving both time and money.
