NORCROSS, Ga. – The Gary Keisling Ashworth College Continuing Education for Student Success (ACCESS) Scholarship Program has announced 22 recipients of its 2019 awards.
The ACCESS Scholarship Program awards up to $25,000 annually to new and prospective students across the Ashworth College family of online schools. Winners are selected based on essay submissions, work/volunteer experience, and grade point average. The funds cover full-tuition for high school diploma programs.
“This year we had a record number of applicants for the high school scholarships,” said Principal Megan Bowen. “We’re thrilled to be able to give out four full-tuition awards to students who are achieving their educational goals by completing high school with JMHS. We hope next year’s batch of applicants is even bigger and more competitive!”
