It seems the summer just began, but here we are, looking ahead to the start of school in August. Are you ready for a new round of classes? As many as 25 incoming Post University freshman are…or, at least they’re getting ready.
They are the recipients of Post’s newly launched Principal to President Scholarships…a $15,000/year scholarship that can be renewed annually for each of four years as long as the student remains in good standing at the University. Students come from throughout Connecticut, including many the area including Middlebury, Waterbury, Naugatuck, Prospect, Litchfield, and Derby. Other students are coming from New Haven and Fairfield county communities of New Haven, Stratford, and Darien.
What’s unique about this scholarship is that recipients are chosen and referred to Post by their high school principal…based not upon their academic accomplishments…but on their ability to become successful students.
They are students who have yet to reach their full academic potential but likely would benefit from Post’s personalized and supportive approach to learning. Against all odds, they graduated from high school but could become truly successful university students under our tutelage.
The scholarship represents what we’re all about – taking a personal interest in every student’s academic choices…making their education a team effort…and preparing them for academic, career and lifetime success.
Another example, the Post faculty awards two four-year full-tuition scholarships to community-involved students who are interested in business…the school partners with the CT Community Foundation on up to two Baldrige Scholarships each year…and the University offers a special Sacred Heart High School tuition – $1,000 over the cost of Sacred Heart’s tuition – to its graduates…just to spotlight a few.
And, for students who may not qualify for a scholarship, the Financial Aid office works with prospects to uncover loan opportunities through FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and other tools so anyone who wants to study at Post University can do so. That’s how Post Makes It Personal™.
With that in mind, we welcome our new P2P students…wish them much success…and encourage them to take full advantage of all that Post offers.
