DeVry University Webinar "Invest in Yourself" and Athlete Scholarship Opportunity

Feb. 14, 2012, 4:05 p.m. (ET)

Attention: Sprint and Slalom National team members from the Olympic boats only!!

The USOC has announced a partnership with DeVry University to provide athletes the opportunity to receive tuition reductions and/or full scholarships to DeVry University and the Keller Graduate School of Management.  The program is starting to gain traction as they have piloted it with a select number of athletes since December and we are now ready to open the program up to a broader audience.

In order to get the word out and gather interest, the DeVry University team has offered to do a series of Webinars for interested athletes. The information below describes the Webinar entitled “Invest in Yourself” and will walk through an athlete’s investment in their education for future success.

All athletes considering going to school are encouraged to attend these webinars and discover DeVry University’s course offerings.  In addition, we have an online application form for athletes to apply for full tuition scholarships.  Scholarship decisions will be made based on the following factors:

  • Prior athletic performance and results

  • Prior academic and career experience

  • Indicators of future career success

Those interested athletes can click here to access the application form  and will be notified within days of their scholarship awards.  After that, a DeVry University admissions professional will contact them to walk through the rest of the admissions process.

Because of this partnership, hundreds of athletes will be able to receive the advantage of an undergraduate, graduate, or certificate education program. Please spread the word.

If there are any questions, please feel free to reach out to James Sanyo via email at
