Orion Education Group is pleased to announce the Covid-19 Essential Services Response Grant
Effective March 1, 2021
What is it?
Orion Education Group is proud to announce that we have made available up to $100,000 of corporate grant funding for our affiliated institutions Orion Technical College located in Davenport, Iowa and Orion Institute located in Perrysburg, Ohio. Students enrolling in the Medical Assisting or Medical/Insurance Coding programs at either campus are eligible to receive up to $1000.00 of grant funding.
Orion’s alumni have played a key role in serving in the allied health community for more than fifty years and continue to demonstrate their brave commitment to the community in this fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we understand the need for additional skilled professionals, both globally, as well as in our surrounding communities is greater now than ever before. Our hope is that making these funds available will inspire other women and men to join the ranks of these skilled allied health professionals.
Who is eligible?
Grant recipients must achieve the entrance requirements of the awarding institution as outlined in the academic catalog. This grant is being made eligible for newly enrolled students beginning class in April 2021. Currently enrolled have access to other funding and should visit with their financial aid office for additional details.
Grants may be used only for full-time attendance. In the event the education is terminated either by the student or the school prior to the student’s completion of a term, the grant becomes null and void for that term. The Grant is not redeemable for cash and can only be applied toward tuition. The Grant may not be used to finance optional programs such as non-matriculating course offerings. Recipients must meet all admissions requirements and institution’s academic standards
How is it disributed?
Grant recipients will be awarded funds in four equal distributions in the amount of $250 at the end of each term provided the student maintains full time status and remains in good standing as outlined in the academic catalog.
Grant distribution will be suspended immediately following any term the student does not maintain good standing or maintain satisfactory academic progress. A suspended grant may be reinstated if the student is able to return to good standing. In the event a student fails to maintain continuous enrollment, regardless of reason, and requests to resume their studies, grant money may be distributed based on availability.
