Lifelong Learning Scholarship

Grand View University recognizes that adult students may encounter many challenges as they complete their degrees. The Lifelong Learning Scholarship, established in 2004 by Grand View alumnus, Aage Clausen, is designed to assist non-traditional students in reaching their educational goals. It was Aage's hope that the recipients of this scholarship will seek to better their lives, and be positive role models for others as they work to improve the quality of life in their communities.

Recipients of the Lifelong Learning Scholarship with documented financial need may receive $250 per credit hour, up to a total of $4,000, per academic year.
