East Central University Scholarships are Available for the Spring of 2024.

East Central University is gearing up for the start of the spring semester on Jan. 16 by making many scholarship announcements and opportunities available now.

“Perhaps you tried a different university last semester and it wasn’t the right fit for you, or you attended ECU in the past and would like to return and finish your degree, either way, at ECU we understand that life happens,” said Ashlee Heck, ECU’s director of admissions and recruitment.

“For these reasons, we’ve developed a couple scholarship opportunities for students, new and returning, to attend East Central University in 2024.”

Former ECU Student Scholarship

Returning to college as an adult or after a sabbatical is a big decision that can open up new doors and help you flourish in your profession or personal development. ECU is here to help you succeed by providing you with the resources you need. A one-time $1,000 award is available.
