Springfield College has partnered with the Center for Human Development (CHD) in providing employee grants to full and part-time employees of the CHD who are enrolled in either undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, or certificate of advanced graduate study programs at Springfield College. Employees of the CHD can receive an employee grant for each degree pursued at the College.
The employee grants have been established by Springfield College to support CHD employees being educated for leadership in service to others. Students must provide employment information to confirm their eligibility.
In addition to the employee grants, students may also be eligible to have prior learning evaluated for college credit. Credits may be awarded as transfer credits for completed and approved trainings and certifications or through a prior learning assessment portfolio process as outlined in the College’s experiential learning handbook.
Springfield College has a history of partnering with the CHD in hosting community events on the campus and for programs that have provided experiential learning opportunities for Springfield College students. In collaborating with the CHD and program participants, Springfield College students have gained career-focused experiences. Check out springfield.edu/chd for more information.
