Learning Partner Scholarship

As a learning partner with Columbia Southern University, numerous companies, associations and organizations enjoy a 10 percent tuition discount. To enhance this great offer, CSU offers a special scholarship program exclusively for learning partners!

The scholarship will cover up to $12,600 in one online degree program. The scholarship will be applied directly to the recipient’s tuition for up to three years or until the completion of the selected online degree program, whichever comes first.

This scholarship covers tuition and applicable fees. Textbooks will be the responsibility of the scholarship recipient. The CSU Book Grant/Loan-a-Book program does not apply to students utilizing a CSU scholarship.


The Learning Partner Scholarship program will award two scholarships per year to the employees or members of companies, associations and organizations that are learning partners of CSU. The scholarships will be distributed two times a year and each covers tuition for up to 36 months for one specific level degree program (associate, bachelor's, or master's). See the table below:
