Scholarships and Funds
Today, undergraduate and graduate degrees have become a necessity rather than an advantage to potential employers. As funding for education becomes increasingly unpredictable, more and more students depend on scholarships and funds to help them pursue their dreams. Most students work at least part-time, many have family obligations, and all feel the pinch from rising prices for living expenses. Financial resources can make a difference in the ability of students to complete the degree and by making a gift you can give these students an opportunity they might not otherwise have to pursue higher education.
The Valentine Action Research Fund
The Valentine Action Research Fund has been established to honor the legacy of James C. Valentine, the father of PhD in Leadership and Change (PhDLC) alumnus, Dr. Mike Valentine. With an initial founding family gift, $2,000 a year for the life of the fund will be available to support costs incurred by PhDLC students conducting approved action research dissertations with underserved populations. With the start of this fund, two research grants of up to $1,000 each are available each academic year. “Underserved populations” refers to communities within the United States or abroad that suffer from poverty and disparities in education, employment, health and/or other indicators of community well-being.
