William Jessup University student wins MLK award

According to The National Center for Education, 66 percent of all undergraduates receive some type of financial aid. The average amount is $9,100 per student.

Degree seekers can find tuition assistance through their school, private organizations or government programs. Isaiah Crockran, a student at William Jessup University, received financial aid from a Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) scholarship program, which was matched by his school, Placer County Online reports.

Crockran was awarded with a $1,000 scholarship from the MLK committee for his ministry work in the community. He was honored at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Sacramento Area Celebration. The event was created to unite people from local churches in celebration of MLK's mission for a racially diverse and harmonious community. He was nominated for the award for the success of his Christian clothing line, RocknF8th, and the nonprofit, Your Progress, both of which provide funding for homeless youth.

At William Jessup, Crockran is majoring in pastoral ministry. The school matched his scholarship funds and offered an additional $3,500.
