PROVO, UT, August 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, will close the application period for two of its available scholarships on August 31. The first scholarship is for 2014 Utah high school graduates and offers an enrollment in the Career Step training program of the student's choice for one graduate from each high school in the state, and the second scholarship is for mothers returning to school and offers $2,000 to be used toward higher education at the institution of the student's choice. Both scholarship application periods close August 31.
"Education changes lives, and our scholarship program fosters that change and makes it a possibility for more people," said Career Step CEO Steve Tober. "We have been helping students gain the skills they need for better careers for over 20 years, and our scholarships are about expanding that opportunity even farther."
Career Step currently offers four scholarship programs: full tuition for the Career Step program of their choice for a 2014 high school graduate from each of the 152 approved Utah high schools, two $2,000 scholarships for mothers returning to school, a $2,000 scholarship for a military service member or spouse, and a $2,000 for a graduating high school senior. These scholarships have different application deadlines; however, the application period for both the 2014 Utah high school graduate and one of the awards for mothers returning to school ends August 31.
The 2014 Utah high school graduate scholarship is intended to award over $450,000 in tuition to graduates across Utah. The program will offer one career training scholarship to a graduate from each of the 152 approved public, charter and alternative high schools throughout the state.
