BRISTOL, Tenn., January 22, 2015 – King University, WCQR 88.3 FM, and sponsoring partner
Eastman Credit Union are celebrating the kickoff of the 10th annual College Dream Scholarship Contest. Together, they are going to make someone’s
college dream come true with a full-tuition scholarship to King University.
Over the past nine years, King University and WCQR have helped nine individuals realize
their dream of obtaining an undergraduate degree at no cost through King’s Graduate
and Professional Studies Online Programs (GPS), featuring class schedules and learning
environments designed for working adults. The scholarship contest is open to anyone
who has always dreamed of completing their education.
“We are thrilled to have hosted the College Dream Scholarship Contest for the 10th year. We are pleased to offer this opportunity to make a remarkable difference in
someone's life,” stated John King, vice president of Development and Enrollment Management
for King University.
The King University / WCQR College Dream promotion offers the opportunity for one
deserving entrant to obtain a degree through King’s GPS program. The winner will choose
their degree path from among six bachelor’s degree options including Business Administration,
Criminal Justice, Healthcare Administration, Information Technology, Psychology, or
RN-BSN for fall 2015 at King’s Tri-Cities locations.
In addition, the winner will also receive a new laptop computer courtesy of Eastman
Credit Union, textbooks, and a $50 gift certificate from the King University Tornado
“Through King’s GPS program, the winner will be able to complete his or her college
education in a workable and convenient environment in as little as 16 months, one
night a week. Whether you are searching to make yourself more marketable, further
a career change, or serve as an inspiration to your family, it is never too late to
pursue the dream of a college education,” King said.
From the pool of qualified applicants, King University and WCQR will choose five finalists
to go on air and tell their story March 2nd and 3rd. WCQR listeners will then have the opportunity to vote for their favorite finalist
from March 4-8. The candidate with the most votes will be announced March 9, 2013.
The contest begins Jan. 26, and the deadline for entry is Feb. 20. Qualified applicants
should have some prior college experience with a minimum grade point average of 2.2
