Become a recipient of our OSR Scholarship Award. Apply Now. 😀

The growing importance of distance learning is evident today especially as the internet has made it easier and more convenient for people to pursue higher education. Online schools have become more popular among students and working adults who can’t attend traditional colleges or universities because of time constraints.

Online schools also provide students with a flexible schedule where they can decide to study at times that are convenient to them.

Attending online colleges can also be considered an economic alternative by some people who cannot afford to live in the dorms or apartments when attending regular universities.

Those are just a few of the advantages of enrolling in schools that offer distance learning.

With that, we have decided to offer scholarships to qualified and deserving students.

The Scholarship Award

OSR, in partnership with Phoenix Capital Fund, LLC, is offering two (2) $500 scholarships to two (2) students attending an accredited U.S. college or university. The accredited U.S. college or university can be an online school, a traditional in-person school, or a hybrid of the two.

    • One (1) student will be selected for Fall Term and another one for Spring Term.
    • Each of the selected students will receive a $500 scholarship.
