Ohio Wesleyan joined Carnegie Mellon’s Heinz College Regional Education Partners Scholarship program in June to create new post-graduate pathways for students seeking advanced degrees in management, public policy, and information technology.
The program will provide up to 10 qualified Ohio Wesleyan graduates with scholarship support of at least 30 percent of their per-semester tuition while enrolled in a Heinz College master’s program.
Pittsburgh-based Heinz College consists of two schools: the School of Public Policy and Management and the School of Information Systems and Management.
Dale J. Brugh, OWU associate dean for innovation, says the Carnegie Mellon partnership is made possible by OWU’s reputation as one of the nation’s leading liberal arts institutions.
“We think this creates important new pathways for OWU students planning to seek master’s degrees not only in information technology, but also in management and public policy,” says Brugh, who also is a professor of chemistry.
OWU is also part of Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Early Acceptance Program, which allows qualified OWU students to gain provisional early acceptance into LECOM’s medical school.
