Kansas City, Mo. – September 24, 2010 – Grantham University, an online university specializing in educating working adults, announced that it has formed an educational partnership with the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States (EANGUS) We Care For America Foundation. Along with special tuition grants for EANGUS members and employees, Grantham University is also providing an annual full four-year scholarship to be awarded to an EANGUS member in early 2011.
"Grantham University is joining forces with EANGUS and its We Care For America Foundation to build awareness about the importance of a college education and provide association members and employees with the opportunity to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree," said Dr. Cynthia Hoss, president of Grantham University.
"The Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States (EANGUS) is extremely proud and honored to be associated with Grantham University in this partnership to enhance the educational opportunities of our enlisted personnel," said CMSgt Roger Hagan (Ret), president of EANGUS. "Grantham's long history and founding ideology to enhance the educational opportunities of military personnel and EANGUS's mission to improve the lives and careers of National Guard enlisted Soldiers and Airmen make this a perfect union. We certainly want to thank Grantham for their long association and generosity towards EANGUS and the hope of our continuing success to better serve the enlisted personnel of the National Guard of the United States of America."
Grantham University was founded in 1951 by Donald Grantham, a veteran of World War II, to help prepare veterans for new jobs in the electronics' industry and a better future upon their return to civilian life. Today, the University supports thousands of online students in 36 different associate, bachelor's and master's degree programs.
Grantham's accredited online degree programs allow students to access their coursework when and where it's convenient for them, so they can fit education into their lives instead of arranging their lives around education. In a recent Student Satisfaction Survey, nearly nine out of ten students stated that they would enroll at Grantham again.
