Keiser University Career Academy Scholarship
Keiser University is now awarding a scholarship to graduating high school seniors who have successfully completed career academies or career classes. This scholarship will support study in a related career field at the university level. As a result of the new “CAPE” Act, high school students now choose a career track at the high school level and study along this career path. Keiser University has been offering career-focused education for over 30 years and would like to reward graduating high school seniors for continuing their career tracks at Keiser University.
Many high school students have taken career academy classes or have followed career tracks at the high school level in such areas as Allied Health, Computers, Information Technology, Business, Legal Studies, Criminal Justice, and Culinary Arts. High school students who would like to continue that same program at the college level may apply for the Keiser University Career Academy Scholarship.
Interested students must meet with a Keiser University Admissions Counselor and bring a copy of high school transcripts that document the career classes they have completed with a minimum GPA of 2.5. Students must also provide a letter of recommendation from a high school teacher, guidance counselor or administrator. Students may be awarded a scholarship of up to $2,250 toward their education. This scholarship can be awarded in conjunction with any other scholarships or Bright Futures awards (which Keiser University matches) and will be applied toward tuition.
Keiser University would like to encourage and reward motivated students interested in studying career-focused programs, while preparing them to enter a “Career that Works”. Education leads to a brighter future, and career-specific education is the roadmap for a successful journey!
