American Heritage University in San Bernardino offering 15 full scholarships in paralegal, business administration
Wednesday, March 18, 2009 By JULIE FARREN - The Press-Enterprise
American Heritage University in San Bernardino is helping to make college affordable by offering full scholarships to 15 students interested in becoming paralegals or earning degrees in business administration.
The scholarships total $200,000, said Tony Ogiamien, university president.
This is a new approach for the university, which opened in 2003, he said.
"We felt the need to attract students into our school because we're relatively new in the Inland Empire," said Ogiamien.
American Heritage University serves mid-career adults with geographic, personal or professional time constraints that prevent them from completing their education.
Students can receive classroom instruction or take courses online.
Ogiamien said the scholarships are for Inland residents who want to become paralegals or earn bachelor's or master's degrees in business administration.
Five scholarships will be awarded for paralegals and five each for the bachelor's and master's programs.
The American Heritage University Foundation is providing the scholarships through donations from businesses and individuals, Ogiamien said.
The programs can be completed in 18 months and have good employment potential, he said
Programs will start May 11.
Applicants must legally reside in San Bernardino or Riverside counties, prove financial hardship, furnish three letters of recommendation and proof of community service.
Paralegal applicants must have completed at least 30 units of general education. Applicants for the bachelor's degree must have completed at least 80 units of college credits, and applicants for the master's must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university.
