Microscholarship Helped EKU Student Afford Winter Session Courses

Hayli Hayden

Senior BSN student, Frankfort native, Hayli Hayden, was excited to be selected for a microscholarship to complete classes during the 2021 Winter term. Hayli said, “I had told my parents that I applied for the microscholarship and was hoping I would be selected.  If I hadn’t been selected, I wouldn't have been able to take a winter course. When I found out I received the microscholarship, I instantly called my parents and told them how I was so excited! I couldn't stop smiling!”

Microscholarships make catching up or getting ahead on your degree more affordable. With the addition of a microscholarsip to your free books, taking EKU winter classes is now less expensive than ever. Hayli said that, “Receiving the microscholarship for the winter term was a big factor that chose whether or not I would be able to take that class. Coming from a low income family, I was eager to get ahead in my education, but money is often a big factor that inhibits that. Since I received the microscholarship, I was able to take a class and get ahead on my education.”

Being able to focus on one or just a few classes from the comfort of your own home has appealed to numerous EKU students, and Hayli was no different. “Nursing is a very hard major; being able to take winter courses allowed me to knock out general education requirements so that when the spring term started, I could focus on my nursing classes. I was much less stressed than I would have been.”

Hayli, and many other students just like her, are able to get ahead or catch up on their degrees at a much more affordable rate, with much less stress and from home. Winter courses for 2022 are approaching soon and you don’t want to miss your opportunity to do the same! Check out what courses are offered this winter and how to apply for microscholarships at
