So excited to share the news that we offer two types of scholarships to qualified students!

iaf logo newWe are excited to announce this great opportunity for qualified students! Two types of scholarships are available through our partnership with the Imagine America Foundation.

ACHS has partnered with Imagine America as a participating institution in the national Imagine America sponsored Military Award Program (MAP) and Adult Skills Education Program (ASEP) scholarship programs. The ACHS MAP scholarship offers veterans with expired military benefits and spouses of active duty servicemembers a one-time scholarship of $1,000 toward tuition. The ACHS ASEP scholarship offers this same opportunity to students age 19 and up.

“By offering financial assistance to veterans whom have exhausted military education benefits, the MAP scholarship can make a difference for a servicemember continuing his/her education with online, accredited holistic health, herbal and aromatherapy programs,” says ACHS President Dorene Petersen. “It is gratifying to offer this same scholarship opportunity to adult students pursuing their career-training goals,” adds Petersen.

ACHS Imagine America scholarship applicants must enroll in a minimum of six credit hours and maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.
