VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Regent University announced Wednesday it would be offering $250 textbook scholarships to new students who may be affected by the financial impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.
The university said students who are registering by April 30 for a degree-seeking program, and who will have at least a half-time enrollment for the upcoming summer or fall semesters, will qualify for the $250 voucher from their campus bookstore.
Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riano, the university's executive vice president for academic affairs, said the university recognizes that COVID-19 is affecting people's daily lives.
"With closed campuses and furloughed jobs, we are creating opportunities for students to invest in their futures," Moreno-Riano said.
To claim the scholarship, students are asked to call 800.373.5504 and mention the $250 Success Path scholarship.
