Arkansas Children’s, John Brown University Partnership Offers Tuition Scholarship

Arkansas Children’s Inc. has partnered with John Brown University to offer tuition scholarships to eligible Arkansas Children’s employees and members of their immediate families through their employer benefits beginning fall 2020.

“Arkansas Children’s is always looking for ways to enhance our total rewards package for our employees,” said Amy Koresdoski, vice president of Total Rewards for Arkansas Children’s health system. “Our partnership with John Brown University is another way we can help our team members meet their career goals.”
Eligible Arkansas Children’s employees and immediate family members can receive a JBU tuition scholarship. Employees and/or immediate family members may declare a major in any traditional undergraduate, online undergraduate and graduate program JBU offers to be eligible for the scholarship. Eligible recipients must apply to JBU, meet standard admissions requirements, submit an employer verification form, and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

”As John Brown University continues to expand its offerings in the area of health care, we are very proud to partner with great organizations like Arkansas Children’s,” said Joe Walenciak, dean, business development and strategic partnerships. “Each of us, in our own way, are working to serve and strengthen families in Arkansas and beyond.”

John Brown University is a leading private Christian university, training students to honor God and serve others since 1919. As Arkansas’ top-ranked university (Wall Street Journal, 2020), JBU enrolls more than 2,200 students from 36 states and 59 countries in its traditional undergraduate, graduate, online and concurrent education programs. JBU offers more than 40 majors, with top programs including engineering, nursing, family and human services, biology, graphic design and construction management.
