By maintaining active relationships with business leaders in the communities it serves, American National University seeks to stay abreast of changes in the business world and, thereby, offer a curriculum that effectively meets the current needs of the marketplace.
As part of an ongoing effort to build a stronger workforce, ANU has allocated $2,000,000 to its Business Partnership Grant.
Q: What is the Business Partnership Grant program?
A: A program where American National University partners with businesses whose employees enroll as American National students to enhance their value as employees. The University contributes up to one dollar for every two dollars contributed by the employer toward unpaid tuition costs.
Q: Who is eligible to participate?
A: Assistance is available to students enrolled at American National University and whose employers have tuition reimbursement programs in place, provided that the employer has agreed to be a business partner with the University. The student may be full-time or part-time in any diploma or degree program of study at American National. This grant is not available to those who are enrolled as International Students.
Q: How can my employer become a business partner?
A: Notify American National University and we will make all the arrangements.
Q: Can this Business Partnership Grant program be used in conjunction with other scholarships or grants I may receive?
Q: What if the tuition assistance I receive from my employer is contingent on the grades I earn or some other variable?
A: American National University will contribute up to one dollar for every two dollars contributed by the employer. If your employer has a tuition reimbursement program, the University will apply its contribution as a credit to your account after receiving your employer’s payment.
Q: Is my participation in this program renewable each term?
A: Yes. For as long as there is a continuing agreement between your employer and American National University, and you are meeting your obligations, your grant is continuing and will be recalculated each term.
