The Columbia Institute is committed to supporting lifelong learning opportunities that benefit all segments of society. Still, we know that the skyrocketing cost of education makes it difficult to return to the classroom for further learning, retraining, and/or skills advancement. That’s why we offer the following lifelong learning scholarship opportunities:
