A new four-year college scholarship is available to a student with a disability. The scholarship is for Aspen University, a new online university based in Denver that provides undergraduate and graduate degrees, including MBAs. The Aspen Collegiate Foundation Scholarship was created and funded by Scott Thompson, a volunteer coach for Courage Center, a rehabilitation center for people with disabilities, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and autism. Thompson received his MBA from Aspen University and serves on its foundation Board of Directors.

The scholarship is based on an applicants’ academic merit, financial need and a commitment to complete all four years at Aspen University leading to a Bachelor’s Degree. The school offers BAs in business administration and criminal justice. It also offers more than a dozen Master’s Degrees, such as business administration, education and nursing. Tuition starts at $250 per semester credit or $750 per course.
