Microscholarship Helped EKU Student Graduate Sooner

Heather Anderson

Heather Anderson, senior homeland security major, is excited to graduate sooner than she anticipated with the help of a microscholarship. 

“I was very excited to be rewarded the microscholarship and very thankful to be a recipient. I was able to begin planning my graduation date for Fall 2022 instead of Spring 2023 because of the scholarship,” said Anderson. 

Microscholarships make it affordable to get ahead and graduate sooner. With the help of free textbooks, EKU Winter is more affordable than ever. 

“The scholarship allowed me to complete a required course and graduate a semester sooner,” said Anderson. “I was not financially able to pay for a course and did not have any grant money left, therefore, without the scholarship I would have needed to attend another semester to graduate.”. 

Students can take winter and summer courses to catch up, focus on certain classes, or even plan to graduate early so they can start in the workforce of their desire. Heather plans to start her safety, security, and emergency management master’s program in the Spring. 

“I would definitely recommend students take winter courses because it keeps you in learning mode and allows you to graduate sooner without having to take five or more classes in one semester,” said Anderson.

Other students just like Heather are able to get ahead and graduate sooner since summer and winter terms can help by knocking out gen-ed courses so you can focus on more. Don’t miss your opportunity to register! Check out to learn more.
