Bailey Family Foundation Supports Strayer University Students With Scholarship
The Bailey Family Foundation supports Strayer University students in their educational endeavors by awarding annual $5,000 scholarships to one student at each of Strayer University’s 100 campuses.
Ron Bailey, former president of Strayer University, started the foundation in 1997 to increase students’ access to postsecondary education. Before taking on the role as president of Strayer College in 1989, Bailey was already part of the Strayer community—first as a student, then as a faculty member and senior vice president. During his presidential tenure, he says he approached each decision presented to him by asking, “What’s best for the students?”
He easily relates to Strayer University students, explaining that education was the factor that transformed him from “a kid with little career prospects into a University president.”
In the 2011–2012 school year, the Bailey Family Foundation awarded 72 Strayer University students with a $5,000 scholarship, bringing the total amount distributed to $360,000. Strayer University students can apply for the tuitiononly scholarship Jan.1 through March 15, and July 1 through Sept.15 at www.bailey-family.org. Students are welcome to reapply each year.
