Peru, Nebraska – Following the announcement that Ariens Company would be closing its Auburn, Nebraska location, Peru State College will offer a one-year scholarship to Ariens employees, their spouses, children and dependents. The one-year scholarship is for 67% of the cost of tuition and is the equivalent of the tuition waiver offered to the families of College employees.
Dr. Dan Hanson, president of Peru State, said, “Our partnership with southeast Nebraska is an important aspect of the College’s mission. Working with Ariens employees and their families is one more way to engage with the communities that have supported Peru State College.”
Hanson continues, “For 150 years, the College has been helping students find their way forward. The College has academic programs and professional staff dedicated working with students.”
Dr. Jesse Dorman, vice president of enrollment management and student affairs, adds, “We are happy to support Ariens employees and their families. This scholarship will be available to both returning and new college students alike.”
Peru State College enjoys national recognition for its affordability. 13 majors with more than 40 options available.
The College also offers a seamless transfer for students returning to school and a special degree, the Bachelors of Applied Science, for students with vocational degrees.
