New Graduate School Grant Rewards Lancer Loyalty

Riverside, Calif. (May 6, 2016) – Graduates of California Baptist University now have an extra incentive to go back to school in the fall – free money. Applications are being received for the Lancer Loyalty Graduate School Grant (LLGSG) offered exclusively to CBU bachelor degree graduates who want to advance their education and remain a Lancer.

Grants range from $500 - $3,000 and are awarded based on enrollment in select graduate program, academic merit and financial need.

Taylor Neece, director of graduate admissions, said the grant is a way to encourage past and future graduates to stay with their "CBU Family."

"If our students are going to graduate school, let's motivate them to stick around here and create a deeper tie to the Lancer Family and the Lancer legacy," he said. "[The grants are] a way of saying thank you for staying loyal and sticking around."

To be eligible, students must have a bachelor's degree from CBU and be accepted to an eligible on-campus graduate program by July 1 for the fall semester (Nov. 1 for spring 2017 semester; March 1 for summer 2017 semester). Not all graduate programs qualify. The grant is a one-time award that will be split between the student's first two semesters.
