Davenport University announces new program to offer scholarships to Future for Frontliners graduates

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Davenport University announced today that it has created a scholarship program to help Future for Frontliners graduates further their education. Davenport’s new Beyond Future for Frontliners Scholarship provides up to $8,000 per year for up to 4 additional years of education.

“We applaud the state’s efforts to support our frontline heroes and want to extend additional support for these individuals,” said Davenport University President Dr. Richard J. Pappas. “We stand ready to further their education with degree programs, professional development, and career services to help them quickly take the next step in their education and career.”

The Beyond Future for Frontliners Scholarship will support students who graduate from a community college with the Future for Frontliners scholarship and looking to earn a bachelor’s degree, pursue a masters degree or take additional professional development programs or certificates to enhance their skills.

“We have been a long-time partner with Davenport University and welcome their support to create additional opportunities for these students who have served as the true heroes during this pandemic,” said Dr. Bill Pink, president of Grand Rapids Community College.

This is the second offering the university has put together to support those affected by COVID-19. Last year, Davenport introduced the Launch Scholarship, offered to anyone who had lost their job due to the pandemic. The Davenport University Career Services Department also provides career assessments and transition strategies to those unemployed because of COVID-19, training for interviews, and resume and cover letter development.

The Beyond Future for Frontliners Scholarship offers up to $8,000 for up to 30 credits for up to 4 years. Additionally, each Future for Frontliners graduate can transfer up to 90 credits. To be eligible for the program, individuals must have graduated from a community college with the Future for Frontliners scholarship. The scholarship is available to individuals who plan to take degree-seeking courses during the summer or fall semester at Davenport University.

Individuals interested in taking advantage of this program can visit, call Davenport University at 800.686.1600, or send an email to [email protected].
