CHICAGO – January 19, 2023 -- Walden University, a pioneer in flexible learning, announces a new pricing model structure, the Believe and Achieve ScholarshipTM to help students accomplish their educational goals by lessening the financial burden of tuition. The Believe and Achieve Scholarship makes earning a degree more affordable for newly enrolled Walden students starting with the February 2023 session. This program underscores Walden’s dedication to empowering students throughout their educational journey, paving the way for them to effect change in their careers, community, and personal lives. 

“The affordability and accessibility of higher education have become increasingly more difficult for students, especially for nontraditional students like Walden’s who may work full-time while pursuing an advanced education,” said Walden University President Michael Betz. “By alleviating some of the financial barriers and providing considerable benefits to continue toward graduation, this scholarship will open doors for students not only during their educational journey, but throughout their lives.”

The Believe and Achieve Scholarship encourages students to progress toward their Walden degree. 

  • Undergraduate students in most course-based programs will receive a tuition-free course for every three courses they complete, along with a substantial grant. 
  • Students pursuing an eligible master’s degree will earn free courses to help them complete their course of study. 
  • Students enrolled in Walden’s Tempo Learning modality, which is a self-paced learning format based on a three-month subscription model, receive a tuition-free subscription for every four paid subscription periods completed.
  • Visit the Believe and Achieve Scholarship website for a list of eligible programs.

“Many Walden University students are working professionals who carry not only the stresses of an ongoing career but also quite often the responsibility of supporting a family,” said Walden University Associate President and Provost Sue Subocz. “The Believe and Achieve Scholarship helps make our great programs even more affordable for students while maintaining the flexibility working professionals need.”

For over 50 years Walden has provided a diverse community of career professionals the opportunity to transform themselves as scholar-practitioners to effect positive social change. The Believe and Achieve Scholarship is the next step in championing these students by creating a more equitable higher education experience across their personal and professional lives journeys.
