Ascendium’s Dependent Scholarship Program sets students up for success

Our Dependent Scholarship Program is one way we make learning more accessible while also supporting our employees and their families. Through this program, Ascendium awards scholarships to employees’ children who are pursuing postsecondary education or workforce training. The scholarships, which range from $500 to $2,500 per year, help them pay for a professional certificate or an associate, undergraduate or graduate course of study. Currently, 20 students are participating in the program.

Two scholarship recipients — one recently graduated and another finishing up junior year — connected with us to share details about their studies, their plans for the future and the positive impacts the scholarship has had on them.
