Edinboro University is helping students manage the cost of continuing education with the launch of their $1,000 transfer scholarship exclusively for Phi Theta Kappa members.

The university is one of Pennsylvania’s most distinguished centers of learning and research. Acclaimed artists, medical professionals, Disney and Pixar animators and leaders in business, education, criminal justice and many other fields have built the foundations of their success at EU. Class sizes are small and are taught by an internationally recognized faculty, 90 percent of whom hold terminal degrees in their field, offering students the personalized and high-quality education they need to succeed.

Learn more about this transfer option and how it might be the perfect fit for you from the Q&A that follows.
