Antioch University Midwest Gives New Students 1500 Reasons to Enroll This Fall

$1,500 scholarships for new Antioch Midwest students intended to kick start their return to university

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio—Antioch University Midwest is offering $1,500 scholarships to new students who apply for admission to AUM and enroll for classes this fall semester.

While the value of earning a college degree goes well beyond increasing a person’s earnings potential, the facts demonstrate that having a four-year degree leads to higher earnings and more career opportunities both items that interest many in Dayton and surrounding areas.

Data provided by the United States Census Bureau shows that a person who earns a bachelor’s degree will earn $1 million more over the course of their career than a person with a high school diploma. The same is true for a person who earns a master’s degree versus a bachelor’s degree.

Antioch Midwest is working to help new students achieve their personal career and life goals by offering this one-time $1,500 scholarship. The scholarships are made possible through Antioch Midwest’s Partners in Education initiative, which is partially funded through the generosity of donors. This fund offers us the flexibility to provide additional and creative financial aid packaging.

Antioch Midwest offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs. AUM’s undergraduate offerings are designed specifically to help students finish their bachelor’s degree in one of seven majors:

  • Creative Writing
  • Early Childhood Education with Ohio Teaching License
  • Health & Wellness
  • Humanities
  • Human Services Administration
  • Management
  • Sustainability

Adult learners can also earn their master’s degree in:

  • Education
  • Conflict Analysis & Engagement
  • Management & Leading Change

… or design their own degree as a part of the individualized master’s degree in:

  • Creative Writing
  • Health & Wellness
  • Philosophy
  • Social Sciences
