Through a unique program, City University of Seattle is providing a 15% tuition scholarship to employees of American Bankers Association (ABA) and Washington Bankers Association (WBA)* member banks. CityU also offers a credit alignment program for banking professionals to earn university credit for selected ABA training courses. By using ABA training, eligible bank employees can save up to 25% of credits for Master’s degree or up to 50% of credits for a Bachelor’s degree. You can finish your degree faster, while saving money on tuition.

Banking Professionals Tuition Scholarship: The Banking Professional Tuition Scholarship is awarded to Washington Bankers Association or the American Bankers Association members. The Banking Professional Tuition Scholarship is a $2,500 award (split between four quarters) for one year. Students may be eligible for a second award. Apply here.
