Providing more opportunities to transfer students

Anderson University is proud to announce the development of two new scholarships specifically for transfer students. The Ivy Tech Transfer Scholarship and the Madison County Transfer Scholarship have been created to allow students to stay closer to home amidst the global pandemic. 

The pandemic has created financial and emotional hardships for families all around the world. AU wants to provide opportunities for these students to stay close to home while still getting the campus experience. 

The Ivy Tech Transfer Scholarship will partner with and assist a transfer student who enrolls at AU after attending one of the over 40 Ivy Tech campuses. Recipients will be awarded $5,000 on top of their earned merit scholarship.  

The Madison County Transfer Scholarship is an extension of an existing scholarship, offered to AU freshmen who are graduates of a Madison County high school or reside in Madison County. In addition, the scholarship will also be offered to Madison County graduates who left for college, but are now choosing to complete their degree closer to home, in light of the Coronavirus. Recipients will be awarded $22,000+ each year toward tuition. 

“Anderson University is well aware and extremely sensitive to the hardships felt within and outside of the community throughout the pandemic,” said Vice President of Enrollment and Marketing, Heather Kim. “It has always been a mission of AU to meet students right where they are. These scholarships are a representation of being a good neighbor and meeting the needs of those who are interested in obtaining a private, Christian education.” 

Anderson University is on a mission to educate students for lives of faith and service, offering more than 60 undergraduate majors, 30 three-year degrees, 20 NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports, alongside adult and graduate programs. The private, liberal arts institution is fully accredited and recognized among top colleges for its business, computer science, cybersecurity, dance, engineering, nursing, and teacher education programs. Anderson University was established in 1917 in Anderson, Indiana, by the Church of God.
