Apply for Morton Bahr Online Learning Scholarship

Empire State College, part of the State University of New York, now is accepting applications for the Morton Bahr Online Learning Scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year.

The scholarship honors CWA President Emeritus Morton Bahr, who has been committed to lifelong learning and helping to provide educational opportunity. Bahr is an alumnus of Empire State College.

For more information and to download an application, click here.

Since its inception in 2001, the Bahr scholarship has helped 56 students continue their education through distance learning. Union workers, family members and/or domestic partners interested in working toward a degree at Empire State College are eligible.

The deadline for applications is May 15, 2013, and award decisions will be announced by the end of June for fall enrollment. Scholarship awards fully cover tuition, fees and special services for part-time study. New Bahr Scholar candidates are responsible for the cost of course materials.

Students in the program will be eligible for scholarship funding as long as they maintain satisfactory academic progress and enroll in four to eight credits in at least two terms per year. Once enrolled as a Bahr scholar, students also must apply for other federal, state, corporate or union financial aid for which they may be eligible.

The Bahr Scholar Distance Learning Center offers dedicated, disciplined students the ability to earn a degree or upgrade skills with a proven web-based education delivery. Students work with a faculty mentor to develop an individualized degree program that builds upon their interests, life experiences, needs and goals. Students communicate with faculty and course instructors by means of e-mail, telephone and through discussion areas online.
